After more than a year out of service, the best fountain in Memphis is back on. Who wants to run through it with me?

Fountain, Civic Center Plaza, Memphis, Tenn.

The fountains may stay on year-round, but it’s really best to go in the heat of the year. We could walk through them, ride your bike next to them, or have a full-on splash park style romp. Who’s with me?

Probably my favorite place in #Memphis. Constant shrieking of laughter.
