    I always take out of town visitors here, but be aware that they turn off the "spitting" water feature as well as the fountains well before the first frost.

    An interesting stop. Seems that this area has been turned into a water park. Call me a fuddy-duddy, but I feel it detracts from the nature of the art...

    Take your shoes off and go for a dip in the hot weather. :) The art is not working right now as it's under construction.

    Bring a plastic bag for your phone and wallet. The more time you spend here, the more likely things will get wet.

    This is actually the Crown Plaza, aka - the "Faces Fountain" that spits water. There's a rotating outdoor exhibit of sculpture in the area as well as events year-round.

    It's hard to have lunch at the fountain during the summer since it becomes a kiddies pool :-(
