I've received word from the city that the drinking fountain in the park is working again. It's been 4 years and boy am I thirsty!!
Unfortunately, the drain has been irreparably clogged with sand so the water will have to run off onto the path/sand until the summer's scheduled, major reno work gets us a brand spanking new fountain.
PLEASE try to prevent further damage to the fountain and keep an eye on the little ones who are magnetically drawn to shove anything they can into it. Speak up so we all can drink up!!
