Gates Fountain

Location
Two fountains with dual steles of partially polished California granite frame the parking lot entrance to 3161 Stevenson Blvd.

Description
The fountain was designed by David Gates of Gates & Assoc., an urban design landscaping firm in San Ramon. Mr. Gates has a degree in Urban Design Landscaping with a minor in Fine Arts from Harvard University. His aim is to connect people with nature via art. People may sit around the fountains and be connected to nature through the sound and sight of the water and the granite, which is sourced from within 500 miles of this installation. Nicely detailed metal leaves on the fountain edging serve to keep the fountain surround from being damaged by skateboarders.

The fountain is privately owned.
