SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Children have been wading, splashing and
playing in the area surrounding the fountains at Savannah's Forsyth
Park, and city officials are trying to keep them out.
The fountains are part of a renovation at the park's historic fort. City officials have been trying to keep children out since the project was dedicated in January.
The one "Keep out of fountain" sign faces a parking lot.
Joe Shearouse, Savannah's director of leisure services, says new
signs will explain that a flat, half-circle section is the splash
fountain for children.
When spray jets have been turned on, that will be the designated play area.
Jay Self, the city's director of tourism, says police officers have been warning people to stay out of the fountain, which contains electronics and sharp objects.
