Park Village Fountain to be Repaired

The privately owned fountain at Park Village is in need of repairs that could take several months to complete.

Representatives from ShopCore Properties, the owners of Park Village, tell the City that while the fountain had been working over the last several months, recently new issues were discovered.

“We are doing everything we can to permanently repair the fountain at Park Village, said Terrie Hatfield, Regional Property Manager at ShopCore Properties. “With each repair, there is a necessary investigatory process to define the root cause of each breakdown, which requires specialists to evaluate.  We are continuously addressing all repairs and are committed to ensuring Park Village is a best in class property.”

The fountain was previously repaired in 2017 after experiencing pipe corrosion issues.

Park Village Fountain Goes Dry for Repairs

The privately-owned fountain at Park Village is currently turned off due to water leak and pipe corrosion issues. According to the Park Village property management, Shopcore, several steps must be taken before it is in working order again.

Those steps include filling the fountain with non-corrosive City water to help determine where the leak is coming from, repairing the corroded water lines, re-plastering the inside of the fountain and finally sealing the outside masonry.  Once the fountain is operational it will continue to be run on City water to avoid the corrosion from the previous well water.

The timeline for the overhaul is still being determined.  The City will be working with Shopcore management and the fountain’s new construction contractors to monitor the complete and timely repair.

While the fountain does not represent a safety issue, parents are urged to keep their children away from the fountain until renovations are complete.
