A Glimpse of the New City Hall Fountain

It's been decades since City Hall had a properly functioning fountain on its east plaza. When it was first built, it was quite the sight with lighting, artistic reliefs showing our city's history. But over the years, the plaza crumbled, the fountain broke, and a make shift set up was used to keep the water flowing in later years.

The entire plaza has been rebuilt as part of Project 180. The work includes additional trees and plants, plus new benches and sidewalks. The historic fountain on City Hall’s east side will also be renovated, but it will retain its original shape and appearance. The new lawn design will complement the recently renovated Bicentennial Park west of City Hall.
