City kids love Crown Fountain. In the hour we visited, hundreds of children got totally soaked, bathing suit or not. The grownups with them seemed relaxed and happy to just sit back and watch the pandemonium which ensued every time the sculpture got ready to spray the crowd.
It really is a joyful place where people laugh out loud and let their kids have fun; a perfect spot for late summer.
