Fountain of the moment: Melville Swimming Pool

Brightly lit at night, the blue pool tiles give the clear water the appearance of a swimming pool. The three levels of pools are filled to the top of their retaining walls and the water spills over them into the next. Standing at eye level with the surface of the water, the top 1 cm of water spilling over the edge takes on a glassy greenish hue appearing like the edge of thick glass. The lowest pool, along Thurlow, has drains over which the water forms small whirlpools which are pleasing to contemplate. Address: 1111 Melville Street, Vancouver
