| After exploring the amusement areas, I then came
across the Fisher Pavilion's South Fountain
Lawn, a lawn with cute rainbow flags on it and
the water shooting International Fountain.
| According to the Seattle Center Website,
"The International Fountain is a mainstay from
the [1961-1962] World’s Fair, but was
completely replaced and expanded in a $6.5
million project in 1995. As the centerpiece of the
|broad open space and lawn, it has been transformed from its early days of hard iron nozzles and
surrounding sharp-edged, white rock. Now children can play in the fountain bowl and venture right up
to the smooth silver dome" (Seattle Center - International Fountain).
|Next I came across the Kobe Bell Meditation
Garden where the Seattle Center Totem resides.
|Across the way I saw Paul Hourichi's The
Seattle Mural, which is a "colored glass mural installed
in 1962 which serves as a backdrop for the
amphitheater stage located west of the Space Needle.
The size is 17' wide by 60' wide"
