If you’re out walking along the Inner Harbor or going to fish at the Canton Waterfront Park, you might need to bring your own water. There are only a handful of working water fountains along the eight-mile stretch of the Baltimore Waterfront Promenade, with no plans to add more. There’s also no clear timeline to fix the broken ones. Public water fountains, when they work, provide free access to an indispensable resource that people from all walks of life depend on, including recreational runners, tourists, local residents and unhoused people.
Why is it so hard to find a working water fountain in Baltimore?
