These days the Greenway abounds with the signs of Spring: the weather has turned mild, the cherry blossoms are blooming, and, in perhaps the surest sign of Spring, the Parks Department has begun reactivating water fountains after their long winter hibernation! To celebrate, we will be featuring a different Water Fountain each week through the Spring.
Our first featured fountain is located just North of the Classic Playground on the Greenway near 77th Street:
Along with its nearly identical counterpart just South of the Playground, this bubbler serves the area well. And as can be seen, the Parks Department did an impeccable job of tuning this fountain up – it delivers the perfect flow of cool crisp water.
