The Berger Fountain in Minneapolis is also known as the “dandelion” fountain. It is located in Loring Park. I have always loved this fountain due to its uniqueness and its sense of playful fun. It’s equally beautiful at night, if not more so. Seeing it closer is a treat as well. The fountain was the subject of some controversy when it was gifted to the city in 1969 and remained controversial until it was built in 1975. It’s now in need of repair and the Park Board does not currently have the money to complete the repairs. They are working on finding funding. The neighborhood group Citizens for a Loring Park Community has started raising funds to help pay for repairs.
