Once upon a time on the south bank of the Yarra River was a lovely little park known as Snowden Gardens. I believe it was named after a Melbourne mayor. Now the area is all concrete and is where Melbourne's Hamer Hall is located, a fine music concert hall .
Please, please give us luscious green grass. No more concrete.
While it was a late addition, within the park was a fountain. I have heard that it was called the Wind Fountain, but I cannot confirm. It was designed by the famous Melbourne architect Robin Boyd of the even more famous Boyd family.
I can very vaguely recall seeing the fountain in situ, as can R. Ann tells me it was a favourite target of uni students to add some soap to, making it froth and foam. Ann also thought that it had been moved. It would seem it was, to storage, but met a sad end. While it is not my sort of fountain, I am not sure that a famous architect's work should have been treated so carelessly.
From a list of Robin Boyd's work.

An anecdote from someone on the internet: I once heard that it is was damaged beyond repair while in storage and then later dumped.
