I love fountains, and if you do, you will love the Circuito Mágico del Agua, or Magical Water Circuit. We are not alone. Marmelita and I were there late afternoon and evening on a Friday. At least a thousand people payed S/ 4 soles to stroll around the park and appreciate the water display.

In one interactive fountain kids of all ages get to dodge through an ever changing maze of water spouts and jets, inevitably ending up soaking wet…

There are 13 spectacular fountains one of which is billed as the tallest  fountain spout in a public park, at 80 meters high, and together make up the biggest fountain complex in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.

Of course fountains do not have to be spectacular to be pleasing. Several simple fountains are landscaped into the park creating a calming effect.

Marmelita loved the water and light show that is performed at the Fantasy Fountain. She felt it was really magical and was very proud to be Peruvian.

The laser light show at fountain #2 starts at 7:15, 8:15, 9:30, and 10:30.

The park was inaugurated in July 2007, and is located on Av. Arequipa on the 7th block. Visiting times are from Wednesday to Sunday and holidays from 4:00pm to 10:00 pm, the park closes at 11:00pm.

The Circuito Mágico del Agua, or Magical Water Circuit, is one of the attractions we enjoyed the most during our week in Lima Peru.
