    I will happily chip in my portion (what is it, a 1/10th of a penny?) to fill the pond – it’s a great amenity for Columbus.

    Probably not even that much. Hey, firetruck, I’ll paypal that $0.001 over to ya so you won’t have to worry about it.

    A private entity (Friends of Goodale Park) using a public resource (treated City water) should have to pay for those resources. Using the City’s price guide for filling a swimming pool, you’re looking at around $35,000 worth of water. You might say FoGP should get a freebie since they are improving the City’s park, but that freebie was last fall. Might be OK with you, but it tweaks me the wrong way.

    It would be free if everyone brought their dogs down to pee in it instead.

    maybe it’ll be less water to fill up now due to the oversized ugly as fuck fountain?

    It’s working and maybe less than hideous with water spraying and cascading out of it.

    It does look a lot better with water coming out

    The city itself owns the park not FoGP. Its the city filling its own pool. I doubt the city rec centers pay the city to fill their city owned pools either. *shrug*

    Excited to hear we will have a pond this summer.

    I have not had a chance to look this weekend. Does the pond appear to be retaining the water correctly now? Has the leak been fixed?

    ah. that does look pretty good with the water going. All that mist is going to feel pretty cool for a short ways downwind on those hot comfest days.
