Fountain Lake Mermaid

There's a statue of a mermaid in Fountain Lake. The mermaid is located by a park on the eastern shore. There is a small island close by, and fountains. There is a rich Danish heritage here, so the sculpture is modeled after the Little Mermaid in Copenhagen, Denmark. Occasionally it mysteriously gets "dressed up" for certain occasions.
