    When I was young we lived in a house on the corner of 69th and Delmar. We played at this park all the time. There used to be a different fountain with a boy cherub. Does anyone know what happened to the original statue/fountain? We always called this place “the Island”. I noted that it is sometimes referred to as Broken Fountain Park. So I assume the original fountain was broken and then replace. There were also several trees on the other side of the island. I believe at least one was a large Crabtree that my sisters and I used to climb and sit in for what seemed like hours. We moved away from Prarie Village in 1973. It would mean a lot to myself and my sisters to find out what happened to the original fountain.
