Here you go:
“When Vaillancourt designed the fountain, the Embarcadero Freeway or Interstate 480, was still in existence along Market Street and the Embarcadero. The fountain was designed with the freeway environment in mind…”
Kind of like this:
(Of course this was back when Frisco had cheap water and cheap power.)
But now the freeway is gone.
So what do we need this Vaillancourt Fountain thing anymore for anyway?
It’s not worth powering the water pumps these days, so that’s one good thing.
But why do we still have this monstrosity???
