Berczy Park, Toronto, ON

This morning I went for a walk to downtown to Berczy Park (near Wellington Street and Front Street) to check out the fountain, which replaced the park's original fountain last year.

It's the first time I've seen it and it's a cool fountain!  It is a large, two-tier fountain with life-size cast-iron statues of 27 dogs and a cat.  The dogs are all looking up towards a large bone perched on the fountain's peak.  The cat is looking north at statues of two small birds perched on the arm of a lamppost about three metres away from the fountain.  The fountain also includes a ground level trough to provide drinking water for real dogs.  Each of the dog statues contribute to the fountain function by each sprouting water upwards from their mouths.
