Off

THEME DAY: FOUNTAINS • Just my luck that the fountains in the large decorative pool at the Rizal Park weren't on when my cousin and I went on an impromptu photo walk. Even the swans should have been spouting water—I took a close look and there are pipes inside their mouths.

You should have told them you were coming!

The two fountains in my area are not in operation at the moment.

Hey, it is nice to see you back. I will forgive the lack of running water. Most of us in cold climates have ice, not water, at this time of year.

Great park anyway.

Drats! Who had the nerve to turn off the water just when you needed a watery fountain photo for theme day! Dang!

George said...

It's too bad the fountains were turned off, but you still get credit for a great idea. Hopefully the fountains will be on the next time you visit.

These are enormous swans. Must be so impressive to see these when the water is turned on. Impressive without. What a beautiful area and pool.

Darn. I bet that's a sight to see --- swans spouting water! Looks like a really large fountain area.

A beautiful park with plenty of fountains. I'd like to see the swans at work...

Darn! Too excited pa naman akong makita ang dancing fountain ng Manila! A friend of mine told me about it. Will definitely include Rizal Park sa mga places na kailangan kong mabisita sa bakasyon.
