WGC's Coronation Foundation has been turned pink for October in a bid to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Welwyn Hatfield Council has partnered with locally-based pharmaceuticals company Roche UK for the 15th year running to colour the fountain and support the campaign.
The borough's mayor, councillor Roger Trigg, said: "The pink fountain really stands out and provides a reminder of just how important this issue is, as well as showing our support of everyone who has been affected by breast cancer in some way."
Lesley Hugo, Breast Cancer Franchise lead at Roche, said: "Although survival rates in breast cancer have been improving, more than 11,500 people in the UK are estimated to die from the disease this year. Increased awareness might encourage people to seek medical help."
