Much more work needs doing, like installing the new fence and restoring the surrounding plaza; but it felt so good to see the sprays rising after over 60 years. And for Friends of Marshall Square Park, a giant step in their ten-year labor of love.
If you go by the fountain, toss in a coin for good luck. Better yet, to help us finish the project, donate at marshallsquarepark.org,
PS The fountain is in “stand-by” mode so the filters work while waiting for the official Fountain Dedication on September 24, 2016, at 4PM. Everyone is invited to this free event.
