Dancing water fountain

Behind Bloedel Observatory was a fountain where the sound of water was refreshing on the warm day I visited. I moved around the site to view Henry Moore’s Knife Edge from all sides.

Little did I know at the time was that, below me was Little Mountain Reservoir, Vancouver’s main drinking water supply that was originally an open air reservoir back in the 1920s. In the mid 1960s a roof was added. Then in the 2000s the reservoir was upgraded with two separate earthquake proof cells.

This was my last stop through Queen Elizabeth Park, before I headed back to Oakridge and 41st skytrain station.
