9th & Broadway Bench Fountain
Found: September 21, 2014
Actually found by fellow fountain hunter Alexis Bechtold and she asked me if I knew anything about it. Despite driving by it numerous times when I was based out of my employer’s downtown office for a few months, I never noticed it until she mentioned it to me.
At street level there is a semi-circular bench under some trees. The fountains are behind it. They empty into a pool behind the bench and then that pool empties through the animal’s (I think it’s a lion) head down into a lower pool, which is also located behind a bench. I believe these areas are meant as rest areas for workers in the building judging by the No Smoking signs present. If I ever find out if this has a name, I will change the name of this post.
The sculpture “The Descent of Civilization aka Bison Memorial” is just outside the tree covered bench at street level.
