Geocache Description:

This is a log-only cache.  Please bring your own pen.


The colorful stone fountain is the second fountain built in Vander Veer Park. The first was an iron Victorian fountain that was later removed. The stone fountain dates back to the 1930s and has been renovated in recent years. The fountain runs from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. May through October. The water shoots up at varying heights and colored lights change the color of the water making for some beautiful nights in Vander Veer Park.

I proposed to a cute little blond while we were at this fountain one night in 1973 as we were watching the colorful sprays. She said yes while under its colorful spell.    38 years later, we're still married!
(p.s. She's still a blond, and she's still cute too! )


*** WARNING: This is an EXTEMELY HIGH PEDESTRIAN AND VEHICLE TRAFFIC AREA, so PLEASE MAINTAIN STEALTH WHILE LOCATING AND LOGGING THIS CACHE! YOU'RE BEST BETS WOULD BE TO GO AT NIGHT, OR TO USE THE BUDDY SYSTEM FOR AN EXTRA SET OF EYES IF GOING DURING THE DAY !
