Summer is all about water, yet for kids, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a sea, lake or pool. It also could be a fountain! Luckily, New York City has so many fountains where kids could get in the water and just be what they are – kids.
Here is a list of 15 kids-friendly fountains where your child could have fun in the water as much as they want:
Right in the center of Washington Square Park, you could easily spot this fantastic fountain where tourists and kids are allowed to step directly in the pool and just relax while enjoying the performances of the street musicians who often choose the park as their location. Fun fact: the park is known for the historic hippie movements – that could be a good story to tell to your kid while you two are cooling your feet! Or you could just chill while watching your kid and listening to the great music of the street musicians in the park.
