Marsha Maxwell

In the middle of The Gateway, under the big Barnes and Noble sign, is the Olympic Plaza commemorating the Salt Lake 2002 Olympic Winter Games and featuring the Olympic Wall of Honor and Olympic Snowflake Fountain. The fountain consists of dozens of water jets that squirt various sized streams with elaborately timed precision, sometimes choreographed to music. In summer, the fountain also attracts hordes of squealing, giggling children.
