Downtown Dallas Wants to Fill Main Street Garden's Fountain. Will This Work?

When last we heard -- on March 29, if you're into specifics -- the fountain at Main Street Garden downtown wouldn't be running but two hours a day (11 a.m. to 1 p.m. every day). And how wow is that? But, look, that's all Park and Rec can afford right now. Money's tight.

But I see on Downtown Dallas's blog that that the organization, which has been tasked with managing the park under Park and Rec's auspices, is trying awful hard to keep the promised "rushing water" flowing a little longer during the day. So it's wondering: For now, how do you feel about having the water turned on from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Friday and 1 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday?

No promises. But Downtown Dallas would like to step up the flow by no later than May 1. But, seriously, no promises. And before you ask: No, the water isn't cycled through. It's plain ol' metered H2O from the city of Dallas. I dunno why not.
