Tomorrow will mark the Grand Reopening of Friendship Fountain and I am certainly hoping for a nice crowd to kick the new Era of Friendship Fountain and Park off on a proud note...
A number of City dignitaries, including Mayor Peyton, will be present as well as an expected appearance by Taylor Hardwick, the original Fountain Architect.
A number of Local News outlets have posted stories regarding the Renovation of Friendship Fountain and park which I will link below:

If any more "Love" gets posted today I will add the links...
I know a number of folks that Frequent the Metro Jacksonville Forums have stopped by the Fountain in the last few days and everyone's impression have been nothing but positive.
I took a quick trip down to the Fountain yesterday and got some more shots of the Park, which is just beautiful.
Along with a Video from the Pumphouse:
Ok that will be the last "Renovation" Post as tomorrow at this time I expect to be tweeting from Friendship Fountain for the Grand reopening, hashtag #FriendshipFountain
