I walked through yesterday and it really is looking goodSome of the lights on top of the poles have been switched on at the new Centenary Square and they look really good in the dark, once we have all the lights plus a dancing water feature it will look spectacular and a tourist attraction in its own right.

We have virtually no water features in Leeds which a real shame as they cam add so much character to city squares and parks.
Despite having a £300,000 restoration in 2010 the main fountain, The Floozie in the Jacuzzi, was permanently switched off three years later 'to save costs'. In 2015 it was filled with plants and remains that way to this dayYou have some lovely water features in BHX.
