It’s been closed down for a long time while they do renovations and now it’s open again, and I have to say, it doesn’t look very different to me. They moved the fountain, supposedly, but if it’s a few feet over in one direction or another I can’t tell. There used to be a two tier, different level thing going on around the fountain and now everything is all on one level. But I looked all around for improvements and couldn’t find them.
This planting thing leading up to the fountain didn’t used to be there. A statue/monument thing used to be there. I liked the statue/monument thing, but this is nice.
One great change is there have been children playing in the fountain every time I walked by, and I love the sound and look of that. Screaming, splashing children. I’m not very kid-oriented, but I once was a kid and I remember how much fun it is to play in fountains. I love that they have one. Street performers used to take over the fountain and I’m sorry they’ve lost their spot, but this is a better use. Now they perform off to the side, so it’s not like they no longer have a spot.
