About Fountain People

Decades of knowledge in the world of water features and aquatic play spaces

Fountain People, Inc. was founded in early 1987 with the goal of providing Architectural Specifiers with a complete package of products and services previously unavailable from a single source. Bringing over 60 years of collective experience, the principals of the firm developed the Total Services Approach to water feature design.

The company has grown from three employees operating out of a single 3,000 square foot building into a multi-divisional operation employing over 100 people with more than 60,000 square feet under-roof at our state of the art manufacturing and design facility located on 10 acres near San Marcos, Texas.

Fountain People domestic projects range from water features for the headquarters of major corporations such as Chrysler, J.C. Penney, and Eli Lilly to work for MCA/Universal and the country’s best known entertainment company. On the international scene, Fountain People systems are installed from Abu Dhabi to Hong Kong.

Through an acquisition in 2014, Fountain People became part of the PlayCore® family of brands. PlayCore helps build stronger communities around the world by advancing play and recreation through research, programs, and partnerships.
