Local sculptor Stan Bitters collaborated with mall landscape architect Garrett Eckbo on a number of water features throughout the length of Fulton’s pedestrian space. Meant to evoke the irrigation standpipes that are commonly found in Valley fields and orchards, they provide color and texture to the pools designed by Eckbo.

This feature to the left is located on Fulton at Merced.
