“Meeting Point”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

This is a great meeting point of the city. either before or after a ball game, it's almost the heart of the city with lots of bars and cafes around good place to people watch, there is always something going either music or film festivals even a pile of cicada's (When they are due) covering the Fountain.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

visited during the weekend of St. Pat's. A mob scene, of course.
jumbotron on a nearby building really kills the atmosphere.

“Plenty of outside seating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

A working fountain on a restored square. There was a free concert while I was there. The square is bordered by restaurants, ice cream shop and access to a shopping area.
City employees keep it spotless
