The umbrella girl fountain is a favorite spot in Schiller Park for many German Villagers. Water drips from the umbrella into the basin, making a pleasant splashing sound, and the fountain is ringed by benches and large shade trees that make the area cool even on hot summer days.
But there’s apparently a problem: kids and dogs want to get into the water to cool off even more. That’s not good for the fountain. So the solution was to add a sign — in English for the parents of the kids, and in dog language for our canine friends.
Kasey apparently is a good reader, because she’s never tried to climb into the fountain to share space with the umbrella girl. Good dog, Kasey!
