After a $4 million renovation by the Friends of the Public Garden, the Brewer Fountain Plaza on the Boston Common is in the midst of its first post-renovation season! With the physical renovation complete, the Plaza now offers new features that make the space a perfect place to spend the day.
Café tables and chairs are set out under umbrellas for lounging during the day or grabbing lunch at the on-site Clover Food Truck. A reading area offers newspapers and magazines to browse while enjoying the view of the bubbling Brewer Fountain and the gold-capped State House just up the path.
Every weekday during lunchtime, students from Berklee College of Music play music on the piano. On Thursdays at 5:00pm, the featured pianist of the week joins a jazz trio for evening Summer Concerts. Berklee pianists James Fernando, Daniel Pugh, Justin Salisbury, and Vivienne Aerts will be featured in June and July.
The largest project the Friends has taken on, Brewer Fountain Plaza has become an attractive place of leisure, where park-goers can sit and read the newspaper, snack on a treat from Clover, and enjoy atmospheric music provided by talented local musicians.
Be sure to head down to the Brewer Fountain Plaza during a lunch break or on a sunny afternoon to take advantage of all that the space has to offer!
