The water feature has select seasonal hours. Complete details are available here. Follow on Facebook for updates. Olde Towne Plaza is located in Gaithersburg’s original central business district, adjacent to the B&O Railroad Station and Freight Shed, both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places. The City acquired the property from the railroad in 1984. The Plaza was designed to improve pedestrian access and safety in Olde Towne, create a gathering space for outdoor programs and events, raise the profile of Olde Towne as a transit-rich neighborhood, and stimulate demand for nearby businesses. Whether enjoying the interactive fountain and nearby Community Museum, or waiting for a MARC Train, Olde Towne Plaza honors the original historic functions of its location as a transportation hub and gathering place.
