Going green...

Original light fixtures

 When we install our new equipment, these original Westinghouse fixtures (circa 1948) will be replaced with full-spectrum LED fixtures. These will not only be safer, but the bulbs will last up to 50,000 hours using a fraction of the energy our current 72 incandescent bulbs require.

 We have also designed the new system to include the existing spray rings and nozzles. We saw no need to reinvent the wheel and we're so glad Roman Fountain engineer, Carlos, agreed! The large flood lights you see will be replaced with LED flood lights.

 And we're even trying to find a way to break up the existing, broken basin to serve as part of the base rock for the new pour rather than haul it to a landfill. Every effort is being made to conserve our efforts and reuse viable components in order to reduce waste.

Encourage your friends to join us in our efforts to go green while we revitalize this center of family fun!

      This fountain is unique and the icon of our park and zoo, which people come from all over to see. Many schools bring their classes here-from Bartlesville, Chanute, Coffeyville, all over. If you have never seen our park, and this wonderful fountain, you have to. Please support this wonderful cause. Anything you can give would be so appreciated.
