The "old" fountain

On Thursday, June 23, the Passyunk Avenue Revitalization Corporation is throwing a party to celebrate the rededication and grand unveiling of their renovations to the fountain at East Passyunk Avenue and Tasker Street. Festivities will begin at 8pm and run for about two and half hours.

More info about the “new” fountain from PARC:

PARC has invested more than $60,000 in the restoration of the fountain and improvements to the square. With the removal of the fencing and the addition of park benches and chess table, the fountain is reborn as a public gathering space and neighborhood amenity. The fountain will also be illuminated by state of the art LED lighting technology that will greatly enhance the square. The fountain itself has been fully restored with new tiles and marble.

The block party following the rededication ceremony will feature beverages and food provided by Paradiso and Izumi.
