Livermorium Plaza, downtown Livermore’s newest public park, is now open to the public!
The new outdoor space, occupying what was formerly known as Mills Square Park, celebrates the city’s history and global significance — a nuclear element Livermorium was named for the city, thanks to work done at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). The 11,000 lb. solid granite rotating water sphere, shaped like an atom, will be a popular public art element and commemoration for years to come. Educational elements are woven into the design, including 10 facts provided by LLNL engraved directly on the sphere, as well as 12 engraved granite markers with additional facts that encircle the fountain.
