Downtown Park Fountain

The  recently-completed “Town Square” portion of Cary's Downtown Park is a jewel in the crown of Downtown's revitalization. A true urban park, the new space anchors the corner of South Academy Street and Kildaire Farm Road, across from Cary Arts Center. The centerpiece of the park is a stunning, lighted fountain. Truly a community gathering place, Town Square offers space for musical performances, outdoor movies, recreation, games, public art and simply enjoying the outdoors.
