This is fun, especially on a hot day. If you're from the area, you may see someone on the fountain that you know. Photos were taken of local people.

Come watch the children of the world splash in the bubbling water. Come watch their parents get wet trying to assure their safety. Come watch older brothers and sisters torment their siblings with unexpected water splatters. Don't run, the signs say. Amazing how a six-year...More

This is a perfect combination of ‘useable’ art and surroundings: on a warm summer Friday-afternoon many folks with kids enjoy the cool water in the little park.

Fully working in the last week of July, so a pleasure to witness kids splashing in the water tumbling over the screens - protected by glass, don't panic.

If you are in the park, you must see this! It is enjoyed by all and a great place to cool off in the shallow water for the kids or just to people watch.

The park was crowded with children. Was wonderful and refreshing stop during a very hot day in Chicago.

Being an artist i found this very inventive, even though it wasn't my own personal style of art. Still interesting to see. I liked the different expressions of the people.

This is classic Chicago and good for sitting and people watching as the unique photos change and move. Don't miss it.

Nice fountain with some need for upkeep. As a water fountain for kids to place, it is the best. A bit run down and a lot of trash when we were there. Very hard to see the faces projected during the day.

Crown Fountain is not a swimming pool. It never gets deeper than your ankle. Nobody changes into bathing suits. They wade and kick and splash and little ones think it's heaven. Kick off your shoes and join the fun

The fountain's water feature operates from mid-spring thru' till mid-fall... so I guess it just depends on the weather in any particular year. Mid-fall is so ambiguous!!
