How to fix the Garden State Plaza fountain
- by admin
Garden State Park officials say the state-of-the-art fountain, which is a “world-class achievement,” is working as planned.
The fountain, part of the state’s Plaza, was originally designed by architect John Schott, who died in 2003, according to park spokesman Joe Friesen.
The plaza was built in 1969 to celebrate the state capitol’s centennial.
It’s also known as the “Green Lantern Fountain,” after the green light it emits when the fountain is fully illuminated.
“This year’s fountain will be the best ever.
We were able to make great strides with this project,” park spokeswoman Kelly McCarron said in a statement to CNN.
“We had the fountain done before, and this was a more time-consuming and expensive process than we had anticipated, so we had to adjust to modern technology.”
“This project is now on schedule and fully operational,” Friese said.
“It’s also a testament to the dedication and hard work of the people who designed and built this fountain.
This fountain will forever be in the hearts of Garden State park visitors.”
In April, the fountain’s design underwent a major redesign.
The design included a new fountain-head and a new base design.
“Today’s design is a step forward for the plaza fountain, a world-class accomplishment,” McCarra said.
“The design for the new design reflects the spirit of the original design.
The new design also provides greater stability and functionality to the fountain, while maintaining the timeless and classic design of the old design.”
The park’s park manager, Jennifer Miller, told CNN the new fountain will include a new, larger pedestal and a wider design.
It will be up to the park’s architects to come up with a final design for this fountain and design it to be “the finest in the world,” Miller said.
A second fountain is scheduled to open in 2018, and the park will continue to work on a third fountain.
