Tom—from our contractor, Pebble Pools—turned on and tested the Marshall Square Park fountain for the first time. With all seven sprays performing, it’s a glorious sight.

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.

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. This free event is open to everyone — bring your family and friends, share on Facebook, call your grandparents!
