Inscription.  Bartholdi Fountain and Gardens is a showcase of sustainable and accessible landscape design for the professional and home gardener. Bartholdi Gardens was renovated in 2016 using the principles of the Sustainable SITES Initiative. The gardens feature native plants, provide habitats for pollinators and other wildlife, and incorporate maintenance practices and plantings that promote healthy soils. Additional elements include locally sourced sustainable furniture, gardens that capture and retain stormwater, and reused plants and materials. The update includes an accessible design that welcomes all garden visitors. At the center is the Fountain of Light and Water by Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi, best known for designing the Statue of Liberty.
