The Burien Town Square Fountain has Reopened

We are pleased to announce that Burien’s Town Square Fountain has reopened to the public after repairs to the electrical system were completed. After substantial repair efforts and collaboration between staff and contractors, the fountain is available for the public to enjoy.

The fountain had sustained substantial water damage in the control vault and the fountains electrical system. Damages stemmed from unknown individuals accessing a water supply valve, located in the park landscaping, while the fountain was shut down over the winter. Steps have been taken to ensure the valve is secure from unauthorized access.

Maintenance efforts will be ongoing, including repairs to increase the amount of functioning fountain spouts. Intermittent closures will also be necessary to ensure equipment continues to function properly and chemicals remain balanced. Residents with pets are requested to please take care to maintain a safe distance to prevent urinating in or around the fountain.

Residents are encouraged to enjoy the Town Square Fountain while it remains open until October. Lake Burien School Memorial Park sprinklers will return to normal hours of operation for watering.
