Artificial waterfall in the park of Bagatelle, France.

An artificial waterfall is a water feature or fountain which imitates a natural waterfall.[1]

Artificial waterfalls have long been featured in traditional Japanese gardens, where they can serve to highlight a scene or to provide focus. The classic gardening manual Sakuteiki, written in the mid-to-late 11th century, lists nine different types.[2][3]

Artificial waterfalls were popular in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, including the famous waterfall in Viktoriapark in Berlin.[1] An early American example is Huntington Waterfalls in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco, California. In 1896, Gardening Magazine reported that it was the only artificial waterfall in a public park in North America.[4]

Indoor waterfalls[edit]

Artificial waterfalls installed inside of buildings can be small or quite large. Some of the benefits of indoor waterfalls are considered to be their production of white noise, humidity, as well as naturally peaceful feelings engendered among onlookers.[5]

Artificial Rock Waterfall[edit]

Artificial rock waterfalls found in museums, exhibitions, amusement parks, displays, as well as connected to a swimming pool are commonly made with artificial rock. These types of artificial waterfalls are often made to mimic the sounds and appearance of real waterfalls found in nature but in man-made settings. The Cascata delle Marmore is an example of a man-made waterfall created by the ancient Romans.
