More #FriendshipFountain Construction

If you are planning on taking a trip to Friendship Fountain in the near future don't be surprised when you see new Construction Fencing on the East side of the Fountain...

As reported by Beth Slater (@newzgrrl on Twitter) fencing is in place and Rick Sawyer from the City of Jacksonville has confirmed this is the beginning of the Pergola addition to the east side of Friendship Fountain.



Estimated completion is not known at this time but we are certainly excited to see the City following through with this :)

Now we just need that pesky "Blue Box" replacment to arrive to get the lights and sounds of Friendship Fountain back to normal...

Mothers Day is this Sunday and there is a  Mother’s Day Boat Cruise to benefit the St. Johns Riverkeeper, 10 a.m.-Noon from #FriendshipFountain Reservations needed: Contact 904-256-7613 or shannon@stjohnsriverkeeper.org.
St. Johns RiverKeeper

Until next time,
Bob

We are in town right now and planning a visit to the fountain. Just double checking... are the lights and music fixed? We'll go at night if they are but daytime if they're not. Thanks!

As far as I am aware the Lights and Music are still not operating properly.

Bob - great website - any idea if the fountain will be working by the Jazz Festival?

I honestly don't know. The last I heard was the "Blue Box" had not yet been received and there was not an estimate on when it may be...
