It will be another spring before the fountain at Point State Park bubbles up again.
That was the message Thursday about progress on the $9.6 million fountain renovation, which began in late 2011, part of a $35 million makeover of the entire park.
If the weather stays mild, flooding remains minimal and the construction work proceeds smoothly, park manager Matt Greene said he is “cautiously optimistic” that water will return to the fountain in spring 2013. The fountain was shut off in April 2009.
“So far, so good,” Mr. Greene said as he surveyed the tip of the Point.
