Nearby Mirror Lake covers the city's reservoir. The beauty of the lake was enhanced by a fountain which shoots water 60 feet into the air, a gift in 1987 by Mrs. Eleanor Meacham and her son Standish Meacham Jr. Mrs. Meacham served as a Park Board Commissioner from 1957 to 1963. Her husband was the architect for Krohn Conservatory.
In the summer of 1998, ArtWorks Apprentices teamed up with the Cincinnati Recreation Commission to paint a large fresco mural on the base of the Mirror Lake pool in Eden Park. The design includes fossils of sea life from the Ohio River.
