There is a (beautiful, elegant, striking, splashing — you will have to decide) new fountain in Oak Park. It is located at the Oak Park Conservatory, in the just-completed Herbert M. Rubinstein Memorial Garden.

This garden, the first phase of the park district's master plan for the conservatory, is a beautiful green space created for the community by a collaboration among the park district, the Friends of the Oak Park Conservatory, and the Rubinstein family. The garden was formally dedicated last Saturday.

Come and see, and enjoy this lovely space.

Great! Tell Ken T that another one has been found. I wonder if any of the indoor "water features" count as fountains. Send in more OP fountains!

Pretty but hardly a garden

While it does look very nice, I would hardly call it a "garden" or a "greenspace"
