Fountain in Marine Villa Neighborhood

The fountain and park at the intersection of South Broadway, Chippewa and Jefferson has been a source of community pride since it was built on the former site of a Kentucky Fried Chicken.

 

Decorative brick encompasses the fountain, providing a subdued background for juniper shrubs, pink roses and red barberry. Blazing star and Black-eyed Susan perennials are also planted. The walkway leading to Metro bus stops on either side features inlaid brick in several colors.

 

The triangle park north of the fountain is planted with a variety of trees, shrubs and perennials. This area has been maintained over the years by the St. Louis Parks Department, 20th Ward Alderman Craig Schmid and volunteers from the Marine Villa neighborhood.

 

On June 26, 2004, a Flag Pole Rededication was held at the "C-B-J Fountain". The event was attended by elected city officials, local residents, members of CBBA, Veterans and the St. Louis Fire Department.
