On the east side of this “pocket park” in the business corridor along Newcastle Street, a century-old oak tree was the centerpiece of the design. On the west side, the bottom basin of the old Hanover Square fountain, the only piece left in the square when its renovation was undertaken, was re-used to form a charming low-profile fountain surrounded by classic brick pavers. On both sides of Jekyll Square, saving healthy trees was a priority. Additional trees, benches and plant materials, including hardy new rose varieties, create a refreshing oasis. The Colonial founders would have been proud!
