Mable Ringling Memorial Fountain

In 1933 the Sarasota Garden Club hired notable architect Thomas Reed Martin to design a plan to improve Luke Wood Park. The plan included clearing the land, laying shell roads, and installing a reflection pool with a memorial fountain dedicated in Mable Ringling’s memory. The project was completed in 1936.

Seventy-five years later, the Sarasota Alliance for Historic Preservation will renovate this historic landmark, capture its beauty, and revitalize that community spirit.
