Dracena Quarry Park sand play fountain

PIEDMONT, CA

I've written before about how health department requirements to attach drinking fountains to sanitary sewer lines adds unnecessary cost and water waste to a drinking fountain. At this lovely park in Piedmont, California, though,  the water drains right into the sand play area, making drainage water a fabulous ingredient in play:



The water bubbles happily down a line of boulders. And everyone knows that wet sand is way more fun than dry sand! This double-duty fountain saved money, enhances play, and likely keeps all the playing kids well-hydrated!
