The City of Windsor is looking at what comes next for the Charles Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain.

The Peace Fountain is the only international floating fountain in the world; it can propel water 70 feet in the air and displays a light show each night from May through October. But 43 years is a long time for machinery, especially machinery in water, and the city says that it’s time for a new signature attraction.

The city wants you to help them capture what the Peace Fountain has meant to you by sending in your photos and memories, and they plan to add them to the legacy of the landmark. At the same time, they are looking for you to share your thoughts on the design of the next Charles Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain.

“When it opened in 1978, the Charles Brooks Memorial Peace Fountain was celebrated as a technological marvel and a symbol of peace as the first international floating fountain in the world. Its captivating light and water display has not only served as an inviting gathering place for residents but has also become a key tourist attraction with positive economic spinoffs. We intend the next generation Peace Fountain to be just as significant for our community, and we are counting on residents to help inform the new design by sharing suggestions at PeaceFountain.ca,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens.
