Heritage Park Fountain
330 5th Avenue SW
This parcel was purchased in 1996 with a grant from the Washington Interagency Committee for Outdoor Recreation. The centerpiece to the park is the fountain which entices children of all ages to run through the circular array of waterjets. The fountain was made possible by a local family donation.

Why does the fountain close twice a day? To maintain water quality for recreational use, the water circulates through a filtering and bromine system. During the summer, warm weather and high use causes bromine levels to drop. To ensure the bromine stays at safe levels and to prevent unexpected closures, the fountain will shut down twice daily. Each shut down will be for one and a half hours. This is necessary to protect public health. On Wednesdays, the fountain is closed for changing the water and other routine maintenance.
