Water shortage on City Hall Plaza

Almost dried up water feature at new City Hall Plaza playground

Update: Turns out the water turns on at 11 a.m. every day.

Swimman79 reports from an arid City Hall Plaza playground:

it’s 10:23am on a hot Sunday morning and the water is barely running at the new city hall water feature??? Just the barest of trickles and some features have no water at all.

Part of a $95 million redo of the former Giant Brick Sea.

.......$95 million and built in the neighborhood probably least densely populated by children....brilliant.

Think of all the kids who come as visitors - Faneuil Hall, the North End, the Freedom Trail, etc.

I'd visit before complaining. You might change your mind.

But in spite of the apparent lack of families with kids in the immediate vicinity, the playground is still super-busy when the weather is nice.

Yes should be a water fall or sprinkler because all open space.

Give back

No, the brand-new playground isn't broken, maybe just a bit late: The water thing turns on at 11 a.m.

I thought maybe Archimedes screwed up. TONS of kids there all day every day (plus stupid grown-ups, college kids and teens trying out the equipment in various ways, cruising for a broken collar bone or wrist). BTW, anyone know when it shuts down, I could use a bath tonight.

Those are so cool. :-) I wanna try it.

(Although apparently it's more properly an "Egyptian screw", because it was invented in Egypt long before Archimedes...)

Each time we've been there, typically late-afternoon, it's been bone dry. Do they only turn it on for people who like to risk the stongest UV rays of the day?
