This is a great place to stop and relax when walking around. The fountain is just gorgeous and offers great photos. Just be careful as evening approaches as the homeless begin to claim the benches and are not very friendly.

Located in Logan Circle this is a most beautiful fountain. If you look one direction you can see the Museum of Art. If you look the other you can see the city hall building. This is a nice place to visit.
