Long Description:
Immediately east of Four Embarcadero Center is Justin Herman Plaza, the setting for one of the City's most famous and controversial landmarks, the Villancourt Fountain. Created by Armand Villancourt in 1971, the fountain is comprised of 101 precast aggregate concrete boxes designed in such a way that visitors can walk over, under and through its waterfalls.

Visit Instructions:
Only one log per location per person (meaning multiple visits -> multiple logged visits -> OK!). You should log your own waymarked fountains as well. After all, you did in fact visit the area to which you marked to way.

Even if an individual waymark owner has a requirement indicating a photo is required, it is not. If there is any dispute, contact the category management group for clarification.
