Love the Fountain very much as it is now, and in the same setting. It was always beautiful day or night. On windy days the spray could be a bit of a nuisance, especially if you wear glasses. Maybe in future,... Read more...

What do you imagine for the future of the Peace Fountain?

I envision a future peace fountain to appeal to all peoples, from a land or water perspective. A large-sized fountain would maintain its role as a recognizable landmark. I would love to see it "well-lit"... Read more...

What do you imagine for the future of the Peace Fountain?

No change needed. Some restoration and tlc but it’s a staple of this community and should stay a riverfront feature.

This is an opportunity to put Windsor on a map in a way that the previous fountain couldn't. It's an opportunity to build a unique Windsor landmark that's neither a bridge to Detroit nor the Detroit skyline... Read more...

How can a reimagined Peace Fountain contribute to a sense of Community?

In 3 years from now Windsor will have a brand new Gordie Howe bridge, a refurbished Tunnel, and potentially a new Peace Fountain. Wow!! Where else has this kind of investment being done in North America??

How can a reimagined Peace Fountain contribute to a sense of Community?

I think we should junk this one and have a brand new one in its place. Everyone loved that fountain but why spend more money on an old fountain, lets get a new and bigger one on the same spot.

Hi mark , what are the main design features are you interested in the new fountain? Should they be cost effective ? Should they be environmental?

What else do you, as a valuable community member, want us to know? It could be anything related to the project or questions you have for us.

Some things don’t need changing. The Statue of Liberty hasn’t got a new dress. Im from Toronto, and I’m blown away, and very proud of our riverside vibe.
