The water features in Yards Park on the Capitol Riverfront offer a great place for kids of all ages to cool off and splash around on a hot summer day. The canal is just 11 inches deep and has waterfalls which make it a fun and safe place for young children. Since there is no lifeguard on duty, visitors use the canal basin at their own risk. Children under 12 years old must have adult supervision. The water is city water and is chlorinated through the fountain pump system.
