A Splash Of Water

As I mentioned yesterday, there's a park behind Gatineau City Hall. At its heart is a large water feature with stained glass placed here and there to create an artistic effect. Rainbows can be found as one walks around it.

  1. That must be a beautiful place to wander around. Modern planners seem to be on some kind of commission for including water features; if so I approve.

  3. I think it's wonderful, William. Those stained glass ornaments remind me of boats as we used to fold them from the newspaper as children.

  4. Must make quite a lot of noise with all those pumps and geysers.

  6. What a beautiful series.
    I love folding those boats as tips or pressies (here the smallest is a 5er...some money to me).

  14. Beautiful, but as a desert person, I cringe with so much water going in the air. Yes, I realize it doesn't dehydrate there like in the desert, but it still looks wasteful to me. Tweeted.

    1. I'll have to see it sometime at night. I imagine if it's not been shut off for the winter yet, it soon will be.

  21. Terrific place. If I lived there, I would sit beside the pool and let the sprays mesmerize me.
