New water fountain planned for downtown section of Cane River

With help from the Cane River Waterway Commission, the City of Natchitoches plans to install a new, secondary fountain on the downtown section of Cane River. It will be placed in the water behind the riverbank stage. The older fountain on the South side of the riverbank has become unreliable. However, it will be left where it is as long as it still operates.

This project started with a conversation about what could be done to add new and exciting things to the downtown area and bring more attention to Cane River. The new fountain will be a newer version of the existing one, and won’t be a priority until after the first of the year, at least.
