Fountain working again at Plant City park

The city is running the fountain from 5 to 10 p.m. daily at the 11.2-acre park at Grant and Hunter streets. The city is monitoring the fountain, and its hours of operation will be extended if it continues to work properly, City Engineer Brett Gocka said.

The fountain is illuminated by colored lights at night.

The park, which opened last year, includes a walking trail, benches and a gazebo. The centerpeice of the park is the pond, which stores stormwater drainage.

The fountain has a number of benefits, including improving water quality and aiding in weed control and evaporation, Gocka said.

The final park amenity, lighting, will be installed in the next couple of weeks, he added.

The park is named after Hal Brewer, a popular physician who died at age 85 in November 2012, and his wife Lynn.
