Located at the site where a 2011 tornado changed the face of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, the Alberta Park fountains will serve as a memorial to the loss and destruction that the community suffered and to the spirit of the people who rebuilt. With three separate fountain designs, the park offers residents an ambiance of reflection and relaxation. A foaming entryway fountain sits just outside the area’s Innovation and Discovery Center complemented by a line of jumping fountains that shoot jets of water from one basin to the next. The focal point of the park will be a large circular fountain that is more than 40 feet in diameter with multiple fizzing jets in the center and a ring of nozzles that spray inward.
For this project’s fountains, ADE provided hydraulic, structural, filtration, and chemical system design and engineering services.
