This is a un-conventional fountain which works as a mini-canal. Water flows from a large pool at one end, down a winding holder and is poured over a formation at the end. The structure is concrete, headed by a bronze moulding which includes marine life. The 'bowl' into which the water finally flows, also bronze, is raised and contains a large number of children's hand prints. Around the side are a number of photographs of Tim Parry and Jonathan Ball, printed on copper.
