Fountain Pond & Mock Ruins
Tower Grove Park
South St. Louis, MO
Great News Long Overdue
As reported from the park’s Facebook page, the work “already underway includes: masonry repairs, plumbing upgrades, enhanced lighting, and improved landscaping of the area. The project is scheduled to be completed this summer.”
Good To Know
Look how shallow the water is in the pond!
The only thing that’s kept many of us from wading in that pond on a sweltering summer day is not knowing how deep it was. Now we know it’s not deep at all. In fact, it’s much like Paris Hilton – it’s very shallow.
So, now knowing exactly what’s under there + an improved sidewalk = I’m going in.
And I’m not the only one who’s seen this sight and had that thought. When the pond re-opens, the park rangers are gonna be busier than usual.
My cousin and I were so dumb I guess, we did try it. We knew so many years ago, what can I say we were young. Our grandparents lived not far from there and we walked up to The Fountain Park so many many times.. but it was fun.
Thanks for the fun memories..
