Artist Rendering of Hanna Fountains

The Hanna Fountains resulted from a $2 million gift from the Leonard C. Hanna Jr. Fund. The project was constructed concurrently with a major expansion of the Public Auditorium beneath the Mall, funded by a bond issue passed in 1963. The 22-inch-deep reflecting pool had ten fountains that were illuminated by colored lights at night. They formed an inviting civic space outside the Public Auditorium and were for many years a popular destination for lunching office workers and visitors to the city. Unfortunately, the reflecting pool was prone to leaking from the start and was removed in 1987.
