Due to below normal temperatures this spring, startup maintenance for the Whirlpool Compass Fountain has been delayed, which moves back its opening to Tuesday, May 15th. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

The Whirlpool Compass Fountain runs on a set schedule throughout the Spring, Summer, and Fall for use by the general public. The current hours for the Whirlpool Compass Fountain are displayed here:  




First Monday in May to Friday before Memorial Day 12-2 PM and 5-9 PM Daily
Memorial Day Weekend - Labor Day: 10 AM to 9 PM Daily
Tuesday following Labor Day - Last Sunday of September  12 -2 PM and 5-9 PM Daily

Day after last Sunday in September - First Monday in May

This schedule may be subject to change based on climate.

Also, please be mindful that the fountain will be shut down for  
maintenance and during inclement weather (i.e., thunderstorms, heavy rains, windy, etc.)



The Whirlpool Compass Fountain is NOT currently operating due to limitations on gathering sizes. We will open the fountain as soon as gathering sizes increase and following the direction of the Berrien County Health Department. Thank you for your understanding.
