A detail of the proposed park and fountain
DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES — After nearly two years since ground was broken to revitalize the Grand Avenue Civic Park, not only is there light at the end of the tunnel, but the beautiful fountain is ready for its close up.
Meanwhile, L.A. County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky is "gushing over" the Arthur J. Will Memorial Fountain.
"Last week In recent days, the fountain has been tested for the first time since it was turned off in July, 2010. [In April], a nighttime run-through of the fountain’s stunning new kaleidoscopic hues brought smiles of satisfaction—and relief—to the team responsible for the $5.2 million makeover," Yaroslavsky wrote on his blog.
Among other features, the park will boast a performance lawn, a grand event lawn, ADA-accessible walkways, a dog run and a community terrace area showcasing plants from around the world.
