  1. Fairfax corner
    The Interactive Fountain
    It’s been 15 years of fun splashing in the fountain, but with normal wear & tear that comes with time we have been faced with the tough reality that, despite a diligent effort, the fountain is irreparable & will be closed indefinitely.

  2. There’s a free fountain in Riverdale Park, Maryland (by the Whole Foods). I’ve been seeing lots of preschoolers there.

    • Awesome! Can kids play in them? We had it on there, but took it off bc I thought City Center’s policy is no toys/water toys, swimwear, or running.
