The Latham-Ducel Fountain is the centerpiece of Preservation Park. It's more popularly known as the Diana Fountain. The fountain is cast iron, and was forged in Paris in the 1870s.
It was originally on the Latham estate near Lakeside Park. According to the Oakland Heritage Alliance newsletter from Spring 1983 1, the fountain was moved to Preservation Park from a pocket park near the corner of San Pablo Avenue and West Grand Avenue.
