Fountain Update

As you may have noticed, the fountain in Irving Circle is off. The pump broke down and has been removed for repairs. No time frame has been set. But we are hopeful that it will be up and running in time for our first concert on Saturday, June 20th. Just a reminder to help us keep people, pets, and trash out of the fountain to insure that the pump runs as long as possible. Thank you for your assistance!

The fountain is up and running!

The fountain in Irving Circle Park was up and running on Friday. And it is looking great! Please help us keep it running. Do not let your kids or pets in the fountain. They could damage the equipment and contribute to water loss. Plus, the surface in the fountain is slick and is a slip hazard. And there are chemicals in the water to keep mosquitoes and algae from growing. It is a fountain, not a pool!

Also, please keep trash out of the fountain. Trash can get caught in the pump system, causing the motor to burn out. If you see anyone throwing trash or sticks in the fountain, climbing into the fountain, or letting their play in the water, please ask them to refrain. If they don't, please call the Indy Parks Rangers at 327-PARK (327-7275).

Help us keep the fountain running all summer long!

Despite the rainy days leading up to it, the park clean up day on Saturday, May 2nd turned out to be a beautiful day. Actually, the wet weather made it easier to pull weeds. Thanks to all of our volunteers who spent their Saturday helping us. As you can see from the photos and from visiting the park, the results were incredible!
