LOCATION: La Plaza Park
ARTIST: Lance Jost
DESCRIPTION: The Mary Ellen Thomas Memorial fountain is located at the south end of the park. The vertical portion of the fountain features three glass mosaic murals representing sea life off the shore of Dana Point with various local marine species amongst the kelp forest and coral/crustacean encrusted rocks. Alternating between the murals are three surfer figures cast in relief. Water flows down from the top of the fountain and around these three figures, roughly simulating waves breaking and splashing over the back of their boards.
