Whirlpool Compass Fountain is the largest splash pad in Michigan, featuring water cannons that run every quarter of an hour and spray recycled water 10 m (35 ft) in the air. Nestled between the beach and the carousel, this popular fountain is an ideal place to cool off on a hot day. The fountain doesn't operate during the winter.

St. Joseph Michigan, Whirlpool Compass Fountain, oh my goodness a wonderful place to visit! If you have never been to St. Joe's then you need to pack your bags and go right now! Everything about this place is magical, your kids will love it, you will love it and your parents will love it! St. Joseph is for the very young to the very old, something for everyone! The fountain is a blast, l am 58 and l LOVE it! It is huge, and l mean huge, from dozens upon dozens of small little fountains that grow and grow to an awesom refreshing spray that amaze and delight fountain dwellers as well as onlookers all summer long! When l am in St. Joe's l never want to leave, and when l leave l can't wait to go back! The town, the people, the shops, the restaurants, the ice cream, the beach and the glorious Whirlpool Compass Fountain!
