“The power of imagination”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Every time I am back to Paris this is one of my favourite places. Even in a very cold winter of some years ago when the water in the pool was completely frozen.
There are many fountains in Paris. But, if I had to choose one, it should be this one with its crazy mix of colourful and bright sculptures over a pool of water.
I was pleasantly surprised at finding the water quite clean but the mechanical elements were not moving and spraying water. Maybe next time ….

“Fun fountain”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Fun fountain but what I like more about this area is the street art all around the square and the streets around it.

“Horrible”
Reviewed 30 January 2014

Unless you are really into such stuff, you will find it hideous. I do understand that it was supposed to be something meaningful (and yes, I do know the story behind it) but it is just so random and the water so filthy and full of garbage that it makes you wanna just leave... And there was a guy abusing his dog in front of it, while he was drawing on a pavement with chalk and the dog did not wanna sit. That scene did not make it any better. The fountain is just horrible and that is all I have to say about it.

“Expected more”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

It's really artsy and different but I really expected more. It's just bunch of random stuff in a fountain which, by the way, wasn't even working.

“The bizarre”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This fountain is a stark contrast to the rest of Paris. In fact it is too much and not worth seeing it unless this type of art and installation is your total interest.
