Union Terminal Fountain Reopening Friday

Union Terminal’s iconic fountain is reopening Friday after three summers without it.  To rebuild the 8,000-square-foot fountain, 57 concrete trucks brought in 450 cubic yards of concrete. The fountain and new pump system now holds a combined 44,000 gallons of water, circulated at a rate of 2.4 million gallons per day.

“The fountain was rebuilt to the exact specifications of the original but may look slightly different. The fountain itself swapped the recent green paint for a pigmented terrazzo with a rustic finish, which originally covered the fountain but had gradually been lost over the decades,” Director of Communications Cody Hefner said.
