Even though the plentiful golf courses in Tucson would lead one to believe we have no water concerns, the truth is, we ARE in the desert. As a result we don't have many water features in public spaces - the exception being shopping centers and casinos. Here is a lovely fountain that sparkles year round at St Philip's Plaza.
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
