The Freedom Fountain in downtown Jacksonville is under repair. As a result the jets and lights will not be in operation until repairs are completed.
City crews are working on replacing the lighting system due to some vandalism a few years ago. New lights have finally been delivered and will be installed to bring the colors back to their full glory.
A controller that adjusts the fountain jets is also being replaced.
The new system will be an improvement and allow easier monitoring and changes to the fountain as needed.
The Freedom Fountain is located at the junction of New Bridge Street and Johnson Blvd and was built by the community to honor those who pass through Onslow County while in service to our Country.
