Southern Aquatics will begin construction on an interactive fountain located in Moore Square Park.
Moore Square Park is located in the historic capital of North Carolina, Raleigh. The park improvements include a new central lawn, planted areas, pedestrian walkways and gathering spaces, sidewalk improvements, site lighting and furnishings, a play area, integrated public art, and a jet-field water feature.
Moore Square is 220-year old public space established as one of the five original squares planned by William Christmas in 1792. The new 4-acre design hopes to integrate the past and the future of this great city.
Moore Square Park is expected to be completed at the beginning of 2019. A main feature will be the civic gathering place, which will serve to host concerts and community events. And of course an interactive water feature for its many visitors to enjoy and cool off.
Construction is still underway as Southern Aquatics works hard to create a beautiful fountain for the new Scioto Peninsula Park and Garage, located in Columbus, OH.
The park will have beautiful themed gardens including a plaza, an area for children to play and a large-scale fountain. This can be seen in the renderings below.
The park is in front of top-rated science museum, Center of Science and Industry (COSI). It is adjacent to Veteran’s Memorial Museum, which also includes another fountain constructed by Southern Aquatics.
This will be a welcomed public space to add to COSI, and the over all Scioto Peninsula Plan. The Scioto Peninsula Plan is a huge undertaking to improve upon the neighborhood with additional cultural, residential, office and retail space.
Corna Kokosing is serving as the general contractor for Scioto Peninsula Park and Garage, and MKSK is serving as the architect. The estimated completion will be sometime in late fall.
Southern Aquatics is honored to be included on this innovative and impressive project, and we can’t wait to reveal the end product. Stay Tuned!
