Drinking Fountains

I think there's one in Waterloo Park, either around the zoo or the splash pad or maybe the bathrooms in between with the sings. Perhaps all three? There is infrastructure in all those locations already, so having a water fountain isn't much more of a burden.

According to the City of Waterloo, there are no water fountains inside the Park.

It's been a while since I've been inside National Sports in Waterloo, but they had a fountain by the bathrooms last time I was there

There's a bottle fill station inside the new washrooms at Victoria Park.

They're about 5 years old now, so not that new. They're beside the parking lot at the corner of David and Jubilee.

I've only used them twice since they were installed, so they're still "new" to me. Would a better word be the newest washrooms? Newer?

If you want to include fountains at indoor public places there are probably nearly a hundred more in the city, basically every community centre, shopping malls often have something near the washrooms, sports facilities, all the other city halls, I'd argue the Universities are more or less open to the public, and every building there has fountains, I would guess the same would be true for some of the colleges as well.

But I think these are .... slightly different from having a fountain in a public park.  Certainly the maintenance requirements have proven to be.

I haven't seen any public fountains in WR, although I have seen some in other places, I'm trying to remember where, I think maybe Stratford and also in St. Marys.  But they certainly are rare.

Staples/Home Depot on King has a horse watering trough in the stall area in Waterloo.
