Inscription.  The Ray Ackerman Dancing Fountains are named in honor of longtime civic leader Ray Ackerman who was instrumental in the concept of building a canal through Bricktown.

Since the canal opened July 4, 1999, the mile-long waterway that winds its way south to the North Canadian River has delighted visitors of every age, including the children who play in the Ray Ackerman Dancing Fountains.

The canal advocated by Ray Ackerman is now one of the most-loved of the many Metropolitan Area Projects approved by Oklahoma City voters in December 1993.
