Cool Fountain, Warm Beach

If the weather stays warm, I imagine quite a few people are going to enjoy playing in this fountain at the Southbank. The idea is to go into the middle while it is turned off and enjoy the sensation of being dry yet surrounded by walls of water. From the number of very wet children I saw on Sunday afternoon, some evidently think that tame sport.


Others, mainly younger, were enjoying this year’s beach. It even smelt like the seaside. How do they manage that? The ice cream van added aunthenticity too.

  1. We have something similar in Manchester, in Piccadilly Gardens, and I’ve often exclaimed that the sun brings the paedophiles scuttling out as always around there, on the walkway next to it, are all sorts of dodgy men with cameras whilst the kids get very wet, as described above. It’s just all very odd. I can’t be the only one that’s noticed this.

  2. Oh, I need one of those fountains in my back yard.Go in, turn the fountain on, enjoy the solitude of a personal force field.
