Centennial Fountain Park was a downtown revitalization project in West Palm Beach, Florida, built to help the city celebrate its 100-year birthday and revitalize its business area in 1999. The City decided to incorporate a large interactive fountain to play on sight, sound, and motion to attract visitors to Centennial Plaza. The New York Times featured the downtown renewal project in an article that described the fountain as the main draw or focal point of the success and a model for other development councils and municipalities. The fountain is still a focal point, and a favorite town spot for concerts, markets, and events.
