The beautiful park water fall planned for McMillan Park has been scratched. It will NOT be built. Neither will the fountain that was planned. This was presented to the community as a selling point for the park, and now Vision McMillan is "pulling the plug"! UNACCEPTABLE!
There won't be any water features at McMillan Park!
Here is the Historic Preservation Office staff report about the water features:
"For budget and maintenance reasons, the pedestrian entrance into the south service court from North Capitol Street has been modified to eliminate the large water wall fountain but would retain a generous publicly-scaled stair into the site. For similar reasons, the fountain at the west entrance to the north service court has also been eliminated and converted to a tiered planted area that will incorporate several of the sculptural sand washers from elsewhere on the site".
