Last summer we told you about the "Child on a Dolphin" sculpture in front of Anaheim's Chase Bank. Back then, the bronze sculpture, which had originally decorated the bank's fountain since 1970, was sadly in need of some love. Dead plants and litter filled the basin, and generally things weren't looking too good at the corner of Harbor Blvd and Lincoln Ave.
Well, as you can see in the photo above, that has all changed for the better. Chase Bank cleaned out the basin, installed a watering system, and planted fresh flowers all around. Not only do the boy and his trio of dolphins look happier, the entire intersection feels classier. We applaud Chase Bank for taking pride in their property and the neighborhood, and giving a piece of public art the respect that it deserves. Three cheers for Chase!
Here's the situation back in August 2011.
We expect everyone who lives and works in this city to take an active part in keeping Anaheim clean and beautiful. It begins with all of us. Pick up litter whenever you see it and throw it away. You've got two hands and it only takes a second, so get yourself into the habit. Do not tolerate graffiti or tagging, and teach your children to respect their neighbors and the neighborhood they live in! Anaheim is a beautiful city, and with all of us making a conscious effort, it can easily become even better.
