Scioto Peninsula Park and Garage Construction Underway
Construction is still underway as Southern Aquatics works hard to create a beautiful fountain for the new Scioto Peninsula Park and Garage, located in Columbus, OH.
The park will have beautiful themed gardens including a plaza, an area for children to play and a large-scale fountain. This can be seen in the renderings below.
The park is in front of top-rated science museum, Center of Science and Industry (COSI). It is adjacent to Veteran’s Memorial Museum, which also includes another fountain constructed by Southern Aquatics.
This will be a welcomed public space to add to COSI, and the over all Scioto Peninsula Plan. The Scioto Peninsula Plan is a huge undertaking to improve upon the neighborhood with additional cultural, residential, office and retail space.
Corna Kokosing is serving as the general contractor for Scioto Peninsula Park and Garage, and MKSK is serving as the architect. The estimated completion will be sometime in late fall.
Southern Aquatics is honored to be included on this innovative and impressive project, and we can’t wait to reveal the end product. Stay Tuned!
Newly Constructed Marcum Park in Hamilton, OH
Southern Aquatics recently completed Marcum Park in Hamilton, OH.
SAI Fountains constructed the river playscape and that can be seen below.
Fun was had by all at the grand opening of Marcum Park in large part due to, “Joe and Sarah Marcum’s gift of $3.5 million to the Hamilton Community Foundation last year.”
According to the foundation this was the largest single private donation Hamilton has ever seen.
Hundreds turned out for the grand opening, which included Hamilton High School Jazz Band, which accompanied the fountains as they were turned on for the first time.
The new park was on the site of the old Mercy Hospital. It is a place where families and the community can come together and new memories can be created in the dynamic city of Hamilton.
“Jim Fitton, chairman of the board of the Hamilton Parks Conservancy, said, ‘This park was thought of decades ago by our forefathers … and it’s finally coming to fruition, and again, it happens because there are people committed to this community like the Marcums, like the community foundation, like the parks conservancy board, like the city council, like and like and like,” according to Mike Rutledge of the Journal-News.
SAI Fountains like so many others are proud to have had a hand in this project that serves to bring the community together, and continues to prompt development in Hamilton, Ohio.
