After lunch, Ben brought us to Centennial Fountain to have a closer look. We saw the hourly water arc from the boat of the Architecture Cruise.
It was quite a long walk as I recalled.
The Centennial Fountain was erected for the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago.
