Loose Park Lake


 A small lake was already on the grounds when Mrs. Jacob Loose donated Loose Park to the city. In 1964, the lake was beautified in the style of a Japanese garden. Willows make a quiet backdrop to the Diana spray pattern fountain erupting from the lake's center. In 1993, after renovating and sealing the lake, the fountain was donated to the Parks Department by the Air-O-Lator Corporation and the Cramer family in memory of Roy A. Cramer Jr., the founder of Air-O-Lator Corporation. Air-O-Lator also extended perpetual repair of the fountain at no charge
