Metro installs new fountains across the city

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The city of Nashville has begun installing new drinking fountains across the city.

The new fountains include three components: a drinking fountain, a water bottle filling station and a fountain with a bowl for pets.

They cost about $5,500 each including the freight, transportation to get them to Nashville and three years of maintenance.

So far, the fountains have been installed at Public Square Park, Shelby Bottoms Greenway and Nature Center and Shelby Park baseball fields.

"We are putting water fountains in places where people gather outdoors and where they are active," Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said in a release. "Water is a healthy and free alternative, which is important as we strive to be a healthier city."

There will be 30 fountains total added throughout the city at parks, greenways and Metro buildings by the end of the year.
