Penrose Square Spray Fountains
Since summer in DC is hot, hot, hot, we are always looking for fun ways to cool off. The spray fountains at Penrose Square are always a hit with the kids. The fountains spray high, making it a fun game to see how many you can run underneath before getting wet!
Plenty of tables and chairs nearby make it easy for parents to grab a spot in the shade and watch while sipping a cup of coffee from Starbucks across the plaza or munching on a pizza from Marble & Rye.
Use of the spray fountains is free. Limited, metered street parking is available along with a parking garage, which is free for the first hour (rates start at $2 after that). While there are no public bathrooms, the nearby businesses do have bathrooms available for customers.
