Turtle Fountain

The turtle fountain is easy to spot in the park. When I visited, a live goose was enjoying the shade below! It is a busy park, but the fountain is worth it.

Turtle Makes A Comeback

This turtle fountain, located in the Irvine Park duck pond, made its return in Spring of 2014 after being refurbished and repainted (as a wood turtle) by an inmate at a local prison. The renovated fountain looks amazing.
