The Centennial Fountain will turn on for the 2019 season at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 17th.
Due to the high and fast waters in Little Lake, the City of Peterborough has been unable to complete the repairs necessary for the seasonal start of the Centennial Fountain.
The fountain is typically serviced in time to have it running by Victoria Day weekend. The City says that conditions throughout the month of May have made it unsafe to complete the work, therefore causing a delay.
We're so lucky to have The Centennial Fountain at Little Lake in Peterborough, which is the highest jet fountain in Canada.
Installed in 1967, the water shoots up 76m (250 feet).
And it creates beautiful rainbows...
Doug Logan from Fine Homes Photo filmed this great video of the fountain (screengrabs from it are pictured above). Watch it below...
UPDATE: June 24th -> The fountain is repaired and on! We officially declare that summer has started!!
