Rock Water Fountain Reconstruction

Many a traveler appreciated the ability to stop for a sip of cool clean water from iconic rock water fountains that once dotted the Blue Ridge Parkway. In addition to serving visitors, the fountains helped define the park’s rustic design aesthetic, along with split rail fences, rock bridges, and more. Today, the few fountains that remain are inoperable.

With a gift, you can help rebuild a stone fountain at Craggy Gardens picnic ground near Asheville, North Carolina. It is one step in this ongoing project to preserve the character of the Blue Ridge Parkway and improve visitor amenities.
