    I have posted on facebook hoping that someone had pictures of the fish pond which had colored lights and a fountain as I recall. I lived in Slater from my birth in 1952 until 1974, my mom still lives there. I enjoyed the fountain a great deal. I am told that city hall might have a picture, but haven’t verified that yet. The rock round building housed electrical transformers and wiring as I recall.
