    Have a seat on a bench and do some people watching, in a non-weird way. Very relaxing place.

    Great place in the city with beautiful fountain and buildings around. No swimming, but you defiantly can go near frogs and turtles and take a picture.

    Not enough chlorine in the greater 48 to get me in that fountain. Homeless people need to bathe somewhere but I don't need to swim where they do it!

    On a sunny morning, go over to the fountain and sit with a book. The water sprays are the most relaxing thing in the city.

    Feeling stressed? Come here after lunch during the week. Not too many kids running around so it's a nice place to clear you mind and zone out to the sounds of the fountain.
