Santa Paula, California: Interactive Kinetic Ball Fountain

A 4-ft. diameter granite ball spins on a thin coating of water. Installed in 2006, the sphere weighs 5,000 lbs., but a hand nudge will change its rotating direction. "Kugel Balls" can be found in many other places.

Interactive Kinetic Ball Fountain

Four foot stone ball on a stone pedestal rotates in water and can be spun by hand. Fun for the whole family (for a minute). Sits just east of 10th St. on Santa Barbara St.

Only a few steps away from the Flood Warning Motorcycle Cops, and across the street from the famous giant Moreton Bay Fig Tree.
