    Interesting, I never realized that water feature was for people to get in.

    • I’m curious about that also- is that thing treated/filtered? I see couple kids neck deep in that thing.

      • What are you, the fun police?

        • I’m all about fun–but worried about the cleanliness of that water, hence I asked if its treated/filtered. If not- then it’s gross and kids immune systems aren’t that strong where they can easily get ill from stuff like this.

        I believe its chlorinated/filtered? I remember the pool wasn’t open for Tour De Fat last year due to flooding damaging the water pump.

      • yes! it’s treated. it’s basically a kiddie pool. and it’s awesome.

    • I guess you never go there? It’s basically a kiddie pool in the summer.

      • +1. I don’t think I’ve ever been there and NOT seen kids in there.

        You are correct, I’ve only ever seen it once. None of the businesses I frequent down there (VIDA, Bluejacket, Harris Teeter) are close enough to it to ever see what goes on in it.

      It was well needed on Saturday! I always assumed it was for kids, but quite a few adults were soaking in it. Present company included. Fun Fact: A few years ago a local theatre company used to pool for a water based piece. I hope more groups can incorporate the pool in that manner.

  • That second photo almost looks like a concept rendering. Really cool lighting or filtering or whatever!

  • From their website: Water source for water features is chlorinated DC water but is not intended for consumption.
