(Providence, RI) -- A famous fountain in the Federal Hill section of Providence is now a garden of sorts. Flowers and other plants were arranged by the city in the DePasquale [[ DEE-pass-QUAHL ]] Square fountain on Tuesday after damage from the harsh winter rendered it partially inoperable. The move is drawing criticism from local restaurant operators who say the fountain is an iconic spot as the busy summer season kicks off. Providence officials say the plants are a temporary solution and that an assessment for a permanent solution is ongoing.
