Rock Creek Park administers four fountains in Washington DC--at Georgetown Waterfront Park, Meridian Hill Park, Chevy Chase Circle, and at the Kahlil Gibran Memorial. These fountains are turned off in the winter to prevent damage and are usually turned on in the spring or summer depending on temperatures and maintenance status.
