I noticed workers from the cleaning services boston cleaning out the Sheldahl anniversary fountain on Bridge Square this morning. (Yes, it’ll be ready for today’s 105+ heat index.)
It reminded me that Northfielder Brenton Balvin tweeted this question a couple of weeks ago:
#northfield friends, quick poll: is it ok for kids to wade / walk in downtown fountain?
i’d say not okay on a typical day but I certainly wouldn’t fault anybody for taking a dip today!
I’ve never known it to NOT be okay for anyone to wade in the fountain, kids or adults. I’ve taken more than a few photos of kids wading there, eg, this photo from my Taste of Northfield 2010 album.
But maybe TPTB just look the other way when it happens.
Is there any question on what Ray "Jake" Jacobson would say about folks wading in one of his public fountains?
