Oak Street Plaza 2

If you were hoping on packing the little ones up to go cool off in the fountains at the Oak Street Plaza in Old Town Fort Collins, you might want to look elsewhere until they can get those water features fixed.

Some reputable friends on Facebook have pointed out that the fountains are not working and the city is waiting to have parts delivered to fix the problem.

Our friends at Growing Up Fort Collins post this message to Facebook:

I have heard that the water feature on Oak Street Plaza is out of commission until new parts arrive (hopefully later this week). So, if you're planning a visit to cool off in the fountains, you may want to consider Fossil Creek or Spring Canyon instead. (6PM 6/25/2013)

And our friends at Clothes Pony & Dandelion Toys posted this message:

Oh no! Oak street plaza fountains are having a malfunction. They are going to work hard to have them back up and running by the 4th of July. We would love it if you all come down to cool off and play in our store in the meantime! (1PM 6/26/2013)

If you are looking for a different water feature you might try Fossil Creek or Spring Canyon Park as Growing Up Fort Collins suggested. Or, you could check out some of our favorite swimming areas in town too.
