Fountain with a column on a base of three griffins - symbols of the city. At the top of the column are three shields, the first with the coats of arms of Gryfów Śląski (a knight and a griffin), the second with Neptune and third showing a Nereid (this one was not present). At the base of the column are two bronze figures of school children.
Signed: Entwurf und Ausführung Bildhauer Arnold Kü..ne Berlin
The fountain was erected to commemorate the fact that the town obtained a water supply system in 1905. In the German time, the fountain was named Jubiläumsbrunnen.
