Park Village Fountain Repairs

The privately-owned Park Village fountains are days away from completion according to a ShopCore Properties representative.

ShopCore’s representative also tells the City that crews are working quickly to wrap up the work. After troubleshooting robotics and sealer issues last week, the larger fountain is now filled with water and running. With a few more updates to the robotics system, the large fountain is expected to be fully functional by next week.

The representative also indicated that the smaller fountain near Taverna Rossa is also expected to be repaired next week. A broken water pipe needs to be fixed before that fountain is back online.

The Park Village Fountains are located on the corner of Southlake Boulevard and Carroll Avenue. The Southlake City Council approved the privately-owned fountains as part of the Park Village development in 2013.

ShopCore Works Toward Mid-March Completion of Fountains

With the new timeline set by ShopCore Properties, the completion date for the Park Village Fountains is set to occur in mid-March 2019.

In December 2018, ShopCore Properties was granted permits to complete the repair work, concentrating on plumbing and robotics. ShopCore representatives met with City Staff last month to present the expected completion date. This week, the fountain was filled with water as workers moved toward completion.

Park Village Fountain to be Repaired

The privately owned fountain at Park Village is in need of repairs that could take several months to complete.

Representatives from ShopCore Properties, the owners of Park Village, tell the City that while the fountain had been working over the last several months, recently new issues were discovered.

“We are doing everything we can to permanently repair the fountain at Park Village, said Terrie Hatfield, Regional Property Manager at ShopCore Properties. “With each repair, there is a necessary investigatory process to define the root cause of each breakdown, which requires specialists to evaluate.  We are continuously addressing all repairs and are committed to ensuring Park Village is a best in class property.”

The fountain was previously repaired in 2017 after experiencing pipe corrosion issues.
