Keep Bob Woodward's doughnut fountain in Mount Street, North Sydney

This petition made change with 195 supporters!


Bob Woodward’s doughnut fountain was designed specifically for its Mount Street site when the pedestrian plaza was created thirty years ago. Consisting of three granite doughnut pairs, water gently wells and then sinks silently as it flows from one element to the next down the sloping plaza. Despite recent public appeals, North Sydney Council resolved in April to remove the fountain from Mount Street.

Robert Woodward AM was an architect and landscape architect sought internationally to create his custom fountain designs around the world. He lived and worked on the lower North Shore for over fifty years and his Sydney works include the Kings Cross El Alamein Memorial Fountain and the Darling Harbour Spiral Cascade (both listed on the NSW State Heritage Register). The doughnut fountain is one of 15 or so of Bob’s remaining works and the only North Shore example on public display. North Sydney Council has consistently maintained the doughnut fountain so it remains an excellent example of Bob’s quality design.

We seek your support in keeping the fountain where Bob intended – in Mount Street, North Sydney. Please sign the petition TODAY so Councillors will keep this important part of North Sydney’s history.
