You asked … about the fountain schedule

26 May

Fountain fortress: Why is the fountain fenced off again?

A community member asks, “I’ve heard the fountain was turned on but now it appears shut-off and it is again fenced off. What is its operation schedule?”

We answer: Last week, the Berczy Park contractor took down the fencing and began operating the water-works and testing the lights. However, this was just planned technical work to fine-tune the mechanisms and get this complex system ready for its close-up, that is, the Berczy Park Grand Opening, now being planned for late June.

Not only is there work to be done to refine the power and direction of  the water spray jets, but they may install added safeguards to protect the fountain from damage.

You can expect the fountain to operate sporadically over the coming weeks while they continue testing. If you missed the test operation of the fountain last week, check out these great photos provided courtesy of
