Get Directions

The focal point of South Main Plaza is an inviting, fun fountain, inspired by world-renowned landscape architect Claude Cormier’s fountain in Toronto’s Berczy Park. The idea behind the fountain came after Gambier resident Phil Samuell saw photos of the Toronto fountain on the Internet. Samuell and his wife, Mary, along with their golden retriever, Sandy, eventually met Cormier and visited the park.

The fountain features painted cast aluminum sculptures of 18 dogs, one cat, two pairs of birds, a pony and an apple.
