The Hollywood Freeway opens near the Bowl, altering the environment and creating more ambient traffic noise around the venue.
A decorative reflecting pool measuring 106 feet long, 36 feet wide, and six feet deep, with a capacity of 100,000 gallons of water, is installed in front of the stage.
Six 35-foot light and sound towers are built along the east and west perimeters of the Bowl’s seating area.
A fountain is installed in the reflecting pool. Its rainbow-colored water show becomes a popular feature during intermissions. A particularly beautiful effect is achieved when an underwater gas jet is turned on, allowing the fountain to spout fire and water at the same time.
