A little-used corner of The Goswells in Windsor is to have a fountain installed early next year to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The area that links Windsor town centre and Alexandra Gardens will have a water feature sited at an empty space at the corner of Goswell Road and Barry Avenue.
It is the second phase of the Royal Borough's master landscape plan for the area and the works will cost £107,600 - paid through by S106 developer contributions and council contractors ISS Waterers.
The fountain will be 25m long with a three metre radius circular pool at the centre, and in the middle it will have a five metre high geyser with a crown of 60 water jets.
Open space around it will also be landscaped creating a new garden and it will also have seating and shrubbery.
Future plans include the potential addition of a sculpture on the footpath when funds allow.
