Alliance Central Park Fountain

 

The Alliance Central Park Fountain was constructed in 1935 by Works Progress Administration and city parks department crews. It is historically significant as an electrically powered, colored-light fountain. The fountain, first actibated during Alliance’s “Stampede Days” celebration in June 1935, was in continuous use during the summer months until the mid-1970s when it fell into disrepair. In 1989, however, money was raised to restore the fountain. The restoration did not change the historic appearance of the octagonal concrete structure.
