Forest Fountain

May 26, 1956 marked the giant celebration dedication ceremony of the Charfariz Dos Contos Fountain at the State Road #59 entrance to Forest Park in Brazil, Indiana. The fountain, a gift from Brazil, South America to the City of Brazil, Indiana as a symbol of friendship, is a replica of the historic fountain in Ouro Preto Minas Grerais, Brazil, S.A. The fountain arrived in Brazil in 104 crates of granite pieces.

The fountain was restored and rededicated in 1997. The original fountain is located in Reinaldo Square Alves de Brito, Ouro Preto Minas Grerais, Brazil, South America and was constructed in 1745.


Enter Forest Park off of State Road 59. As you enter park, you will see a big monumental fountain on left side of road, park near here.

In front of the fountain, there is a plaque. Your journey starts here. Look directly behind you for a stone path. Go north on this path until you see another plaque on the ground. Stop here. At that plaque head towards the tennis courts, here you can jump on the sidewalk. Continue on sidewalk until you come to the road. Look for "old settlers homes" Walk to these and stand at Williams front door. Look through the wheel on the right and you will find the Brazil Rotary Club sign, which is blue and orange. Say goodbye to William and head in the direction of the Rotary sign. At this Rotary Club sign, look towards the golf course clubhouse. On your left you will need to count the number of light posts, then look to your right and count the number of windows on the bandshell. Subtract the number of windows from the lightposts. REMEMBER THIS NUMBER. Walk around to the back door of the bandstand and put heels against the bottom step. Using the number from the subtraction problem, multiply this number by 10 and pace off this many steps, straight ahead, then turn towards the Frisbee Gold Goal #10 and pace 5 more steps, turn right. Look straight ahead, your goal is at the base of this tree.

This is a very busy park, please retrieve and hide carefully!!!
