Water Fountains in Every Park
Committee: Community Resources
Total Cost: $90,000
Locations: Nine Cambridge City Parks
Install new water fountain/bottle-fillers at up to 9 parks that lack drinking water fixtures. If this initiative wins, funding will be complete for water fountain installation in most of the City owned parks.
Install new water fountain/bottle-fillers at up to nine parks that lack drinking water fixtures. This will ensure that more residents can enjoy free and clean drinking water at their local park.
Installing more drinking fountains will provide Cambridge residents with access to free drinking water as they pass through parks. This would particularly impact people who regularly spend time at parks including young children and their caretakers, the elderly, joggers, and the homeless.
If this proposal passes, the City will install combination water fountain/bottle-fillers at up to nine parks.
