Wednesday afternoon, the Charles Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain was being installed at Coventry Gardens on Windsors east side.   A sure sign that  the warm summer months will be here soon!

Here is some history on the fountain from the City of Windsor website:

The Charlie Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain was designed by Richard J. Van Seters, Fountain Design Consultant of M.M. Dillon Ltd., and T.W. Szalay, Director of Special projects for Windsor’s Department of Public Works. The fountain is dedicated to the memory of former labour leader Charlie Brooks (1915-1977), an enthusiastic booster of Windsor’s riverfront development. When operating at full capacity, the fountain draws over 12,000 gallons of water per minute and propels it over 70 feet in the air. The fountain’s lighting display is operated by an on-shore programming unit, and during the evening hours visitors to the park are treated to an overwhelmingly beautiful visual spectacle.
