The Confederation Fountain and shields of the Provinces, centered by the national Coat of Arms, is a small but relaxing area just off the main drag of the waterfront, and just around the corner from the magnificent Provincial Legislature building. A quiet respite from the thronging crowds of tourists in the more enticing tourist spots nearby.

This fountain is one of three within a walkable circumference of the Legislature Building. Starting here at the west side you can find out about Canada's ten provinces and three territories while listening to the beautiful cascading water feature. Continue along Menzies then turn left on Superior to see another fountain on the building's south side. It has a nature vibe with local animals appearing to cavort in the changing arc of shooting water. Continue to the east taking a path around the Legislature you will come to the wide front lawn which faces north, from where you'll spot the champagne glass-like fountain that always makes me think it was constructed to give a toast to the statue of Queen Victoria, standing front and centre.

Just west of the legislature and north of the Robert Bateman Gallery. Great photo op, lots of seating.

If I hadn't have turned down this side of the Legislative Building, I would've missed out on seeing this. It was amazing to see - from the arched tree entrance off the side road, to the gorgeous fountain, to the provinces shields. However, I found myself wondering why the NWT and Nunavut don't have dates - and why Nunavut's shield is round?!?
