Fountain At The Point Ready In June
The fountain in Downtown's Point State Park, which has been shut off for repairs since April 2009, will resume operation in a ceremony set for June 7. The dedication ceremony, titled "Riverlights At The Point", will be free and open to the public and will take place on the first night of the Three Rivers Arts Festival.
When it returns to operation, the fountain will have a disappearing edge water feature inside the basin, a restored outer basin ring, new pumping equipment and new LED lighting. The fountain, which sprays water up to 150 feet in the air, draws its water from an aquifer known as the Wisconsin Glacial Flow, which passes beneath the park and beneath the rivers. This aquifer is sometimes referred to as our "fourth river".
