Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Drinking Fountains
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.
