Water Fountains at the Playgorunds/Parks
Aside from the hot summer months, do you drink from water fountains that are in the parks/playground or anywhere? Do you encourage your children to? If not, share your reason?
I ask because, I remember when little how big a deal it was to even have water fountains available in some places. Over time, less people including myself use them on a regular. We do buy water and I keep some packed for our outings especially for little man to stay hydrated. I'm curious to see how common or uncommon it really has become.
However, what's prompted me not to in the earlier years is always having my own water with me. Now for more recent reasons of which I'm not sure you have where you reside: I've noticed in some neighboring communities/areas of town having signs posted for mainly subdivisions stating "Superior Quality Water" (including water district #)while some subdivisions along side them did not have the same sign posted but instead the typical sign with their water district number. Often times their aren't any signs posted at the parks/public facilities in regards to this and it just makes me wonder how much the water quality really differentiates. Personally, I hate that all water cannot be superior quality....... but it's out if our control.....
