People who live near Longwood Gardens recently received a "Dear Neighbor" letter explaining what's involved in getting the renovated Fountain Garden ready for its May 27 grand opening.
"You may hear loud popping sounds and music as we test fountain functionality and appropriate sound levels," reads the letters, which is over the signature of Longwood's president and CEO Paul Redman.
"We appreciate your patience as we fine tune our performances before and after our public hours of operation. We are, of course, adhering to any and all codes for sound levels to ensure that we are not being a disruptive neighbor."
Two free admission tickets were enclosed.
