Cool Off with this Fountain Video!

Wilcox Fountain, Westerly Rhode Island from Youth RARI on Vimeo.

Wilcox Park in Westerly, RI was first designed by the Boston landscape architect Warren Manning, a former associate of Frederick Law Olmstead. The architect Frank Hamilton continued his work in plans for the addition of the pond and other varied terrain.

The Wilcox Memorial Fountain is composed of an octagonal water basin made from Westerly granite, with a bronze center statue of a woman holding a large scallop shell. The statue was designed and modeled by John Francis Paramino of Boston, and installed in Wilcox Park in 1929.
