Since May 2004, Exchange Club Memories Fountain has been a popular attraction in Fredenhagen Park.

Note also that late in the 30-minute Naperville Park District Board of Commissioners meeting, a report about Fredenhagen Park revealed that repair and renovation of the fountain are necessary. Fountain needs are now being examined since the almost-20-year-old fountain is past its life cycle. When costs are provided, plans and specifications will be sent to the Riverwalk Commission and the City of Naperville.
