The city of Marietta is refurbishing the fountain in Glover Park and replacing bricks in the park and along the sidewalks for visitor safety.
“The work is necessary because soil under the bricks was shifting and settling, which caused many of the bricks along the edges to become unstable and needing to be reset,” city parks director Rich Buss said.
“Contractors are removing bricks and pouring a wider concrete footer underneath the edges,” Buss said. “New bricks will be installed after the concrete is poured.”
The fountain in Glover Park will also be repainted and refurbished.
Buss expects construction to be complete by April 1, weather permitting.
Encouraging revitalization of Marietta’s current parks and establishing new parks for active and passive use is a goal City Council established as part of its vision statement.
