Think the Polish Triangle needs improvement?  Here is what it looked like 60 years ago.

The past...

The Future...

Possible changes coming to the Polish Triangle:

information and historical kiosks

a Mosaic ring around the fountain to replace the mud ring

a blooming fountain to replace the water until funds can be found to repair the broken tiles in the fountain

a permanent food vendor on the triangle

bicycle rental coming spring 2013 - this is now located at CVS south side of building

pigeon abatement program
