Sausalito Things to Do: 48 reviews and 60 photos

  A not-so-sudsy fountain
by jessicadf

Photo from across the street. All my life, until about 5 years ago, this park was sealed off and nobody was allowed to walk inside. One could only walk around the perimeter and look at the fountain and gardens from the distance.

My mother and her five brothers grew up in Sausalito. The official story is that the park was closed in the mid-1960's when hippies were loitering in the park and were seen as an eye-sore. My mother, however, has a different story. She and her five brothers grew up in Sausalito and were sometimes rather naughty. Mom claims that she and her brothers, on more than one occasion, dumped a box of laundry detergent and a box of food-coloring in to the fountain, so that it foamed up and turned an awful color.

Who knows the REAL story? You be the judge...
