The fountain and the Park were in constant use, without any renovations for more than 30 years, until Pittsburgh's 250th anniversary. The reopening of the fountain marks the final phase of a 6 year renovation process, which has been documented on the Riverlife Taskforce <a href="http://www.riverlifetaskforce.org/">Blog</a> with before and after photos.</p><p>The waterworks resume this weekend, just in time for the <a href="http://www.3riversartsfest.org/">Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival</a>.</p><blockquote><p>Guest: <strong>Lisa Schroeder</strong> is President and Chief Executive Officer of <a href="http://www.riverlifetaskforce.org/">Riverlife Pittsburgh</a> a group that's promoting the rebirth of Point State Park and the fountain.
