  • The fountain is under renovation. The place immediately surrounding the fountain has its pavers being replaced. The fountain was not on hence when we visited, but they look great and massive none the less. I am sure that they look magnificent when the fountain is on and in its full glory, especially all lighted up in the night. Not sure how long the renovation will take, but be sure to see it none the less.
  • We didn’t get to see the fountain up close as there were ongoing renovations and construction work when we visited in the summer. Such a shame. We were a bit bummed out to see that the whole area was closed off from public access. Still, it was quite interesting to see the fountain from afar. Hopefully they finish the renovations soon. It looked like major works were ongoing.
