The City of Bowling Green will begin making necessary improvements to Fountain Square Park beginning the week of July 10th, 2017 with an estimated ending date of November 2017. This iconic location has long served as the heartbeat of Bowling Green and it is important to the City that we ensure this is the case for many future years.

The Fountain Square Park improvements will consist of two phases and will be completed by Scott and Murphy and the Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department. The project will include the refurbishing of the fountain and surrounding pool which has become unstable; refurbishing of many light poles, water fountains and statues; replacement of sidewalks and decorative pavers that are uneven and showing deterioration; and the moving of benches off of the sidewalk in order increase walking capacity.

In addition to the above items, six decaying or diseased trees will be removed from Fountain Square Park. The trees slated for removal are in decline and/or decay and continually have limbs that break over high traffic areas creating a hazard to pedestrians. In addition, two of the trees being removed produce an abundance of fruit that leaves a slippery, foul smelling mess on the sidewalks. While the City always attempts to preserve our trees, it has been determined that the removal of these six trees will greatly increase the safety and usability of our park.

Scott and Murphy management will be on-site prominently, and will welcome any questions downtown businesses and users have throughout the project. In addition, the City of Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Parks/Golf Maintenance Supervisor, Mike Mitchum, will be the City’s primary contact relating to this project and can be reached at 270-393-3268.

The City of Bowling Green will regularly update the public on this project via local media, Facebook, The City Blog, Twitter and more. We appreciate your patience during this time as we strive to keep Fountain Square Park aesthetically pleasing, usable for our residents and visitors, and safe.
