This marvelous installation in Millenium Park is visually intriguing but also begs one to take off the sandals and stride into the shallow water. Also a fun place to people watch.

The Crown Fountain is a little creepy but extremely intriguing. Just one of those small touches that makes Chi-town one of the greatest cities in the world

Near the street in Millennium Park, I found heaps of small children squealing in delight as the played in the fountains. Who even thinks of these things!?!

Two mirrored glass block pillars face each other across the quad. Random giant faces appear on the interior faces and state each other down, blink, then water pours out the 👄. A little creepy. Thankfully we only stumbled on this and it wasn't a destination....More

Easy to visit. Great interactive art piece, make sure you take a little walk and visit the gardens right behind it.

A perfect item for the location...faces at opposite ebnds of a courtyard, with water in the middle...about ankle deep. Kids run through it, splashing and playing. Then, every few minutes...the faces pucker up and water comes out in a stream, usually crashing over a kid...More

Crown Fountain is not a swimming pool. It never gets deeper than your ankle. Nobody changes into bathing suits. They wade and kick and splash and little ones think it's heaven. Kick off your shoes and join the fun

The fountain's water feature operates from mid-spring thru' till mid-fall... so I guess it just depends on the weather in any particular year. Mid-fall is so ambiguous!!
