Memorial Fountain Plaza, Palm Beach, Palm Beach FL

Description

In the middle of the divider on S. County Rd, behind Town Hall, is a lovely little spot that makes you feel like you're in Europe! It is Memorial Fountain Plaza, designed by architect Mizner, who designed much of Palm Beach. It consists of a long pool fountain, clear and sweet, flanked by palm trees. Potted plants add to the ambience, as does a small tree at Christmastime. On the upper terrace is a grand fountain, designed after the Fountain of the Sea Horses, at Villa Borghese in Rome. Below this is an adorable European-style courtyard with little chairs and tables. 
Walk the side streets here, Brazilian Ave, Chilean Ave, and Australian Ave, checking out the mansions, huge entry hedges, coconut trees, and hibiscus flowers. They will delight your senses, and there is almost always shade on one side of the street. At the far end of each side street is the gorgeous Midtown Beach on the east side, and a park with wonderful banyan trees on the west side.
