Have they even started yet? Considering how much of summer is left...

AoD
As I said above, the Entertainment District BIA said the work is starting soon. "We are set to go [refurbishing the Salmon Run Fountain]. Just waiting for the construction staging and the work should begin this month. Toronto Entertainment District BIA" If it is only tiling (as is, I think the case) and all the plumbing was fixed last year this should not take too long and you can't lay external tiles if it's too cold.

Just got this from Kristin Wong-Tam's office on the fountain at QUEEN AND UNIVERSITY.

"Last year, temporary repairs were made to the filtration system in order to have the fountain operational for the Pan Am games. Permanent repairs are now being carried out and the fountains should be operational in two weeks. Unlike the lengthy litigation that halted work there previously, this is a much more minor delay that has a functional solution."

Just wondering if anyone had any info on the fountain that is being installed at Clarence Square Park on Spadina Ave? I walked past the park earlier today and noticed they have a section of the park fenced off due to to the installation of a fountain that was apparently donated.

I had a nice time sitting in front of this fountain last evening. This is on Yonge Street, a few blocks north of Sheppard.

The work on retiling the Salmon Run Fountain at Rogers Centre/CN Tower proceeds (rather slowly). It should just about be finished for the first frost. Looks quite good actually but I wish it was working properly, it is fantastic when it is.

Walked by today and it's working (hopefully not just temporarily for Canada 150).
