The sounds, sights and scents of the season make Brewer Fountain Plaza a popular gathering spot for spring and summer once again.  If you have been following the evolution of this area in recent years, you are probably aware that a $4 million renovation project by the Friends has transformed it from a once deteriorated space to a destination of choice for residents, area workers, and anyone looking for a fountain-side retreat in a spectacular outdoor venue.  You may have read about the project in our recent blog post What’s Happening on Brewer Fountain Plaza and will be happy to know that the tables, chairs, music, reading room, and Clover Food truck are all back on the plaza ahead of schedule.  As for the construction happening just a few feet away, it is where the final phase of the restoration project is taking place.  Thank you for your words of appreciation for this project and for your patience as we complete it.  If you are interested in receiving updates on Brewer Fountain Plaza and other Friends activities, please sign up for our email newsletter and other alerts, and follow us on social media.
