What's in the Works
The Charles Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain is nearing the end of its service life, and the City of Windsor is developing a specialized and innovative water feature design to replace the iconic Charles Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain in Reaume Park, also known as Coventry Gardens. A multi-disciplinary design team led by architecture studio PARTISANS has been retained to develop design concepts based on an intensive public engagement process. In the next three months, the design team will work through an iterative process of gathering public input and responding with design ideas to develop a meaningful future plan for the Charles Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain. In early 2022, three design concepts will be presented to council for consideration.
What's Happened so Far
We launched the first phase of the process where we asked for your stories, memories, and photographs to get a comprehensive understanding of the fountain's meaning to Windsorites.
What's Happening Next
We're launching the second phase of the process which focuses on Visioning. You can respond to comments on this platform, as well as take our surveys on the themes of Community, Environment, and Memory at www.peacefountain.ca#visioning
Remember to sign-up to receive updates on the project as it progresses. Our intent is to engage in an open, collaborative design process and to provide frequent updates and to elicit feedback often throughout this process.
