Nice place to rest after walking around downtown Cincy trying to find something to do. Plenty of seats to watch the changing colors on the cool fountain.
Plenty to do on the square! Picturesque place;
The PNC summer music festivals!
The four figures around the rim were originally designed as drinking fountains, and visitors can still drink from them. The water that flows from these figures is fresh, not chlorinated, water.
Great atmosphere and view

Do you see any water fountains? You can actually drink from the four corners of the fountain. It is table water. Just ask!
Yup, it's hoppin'.

When you park at fountain square, use your credit card on the way in, instead of getting a ticket, then you don't need to pay at the kiosk. Just use your card again at the end as your 'ticket'!

For great photos of the fountain: set your camera on a tripod and use a long exposure (2-5 seconds) to capture the running water. Get Carew or the colored lights above Rock Bottom in the background.

Great free outdoor movie series in the summer months
The fountain statue is called the 'Genious of Water'. This is out of irony because the guy tasked with giving it a name in 1987 drew a blank and all his friends mocked him like oh you're a real genius
Grab a seat on the Via Vite terrace, perfect spot to eat, drink and people watch.
