Proceeds from this year's 2008 Northside Home Tour will be used to restore and renovate Backesto Park's drinking fountain to it's original working capacity and beauty. This project includes new pathways, lighting, benches, landscaping, and plumbing to create a relaxing water oasis for anyone to enjoy under the shade of the grand Sycamore trees. The Friends of Backesto Park, a group of passionate volunteers who meet regularly, are the ones making this dream into a reality.
