But the faces are still there. Nice little park. Close to Cloud Gate and Michigan lake. Nice place to walk by.

I saw this fountain when I was in downtown Chicago for an event. It is fascinating to stand and watch the faces. It catches you off guard at first. Very creative

I came here on a Friday morning before the Art Institute of Chicago opened. There wasn’t any water coming out of the foundation (probably because it was freezing) but there were LED images of faces being displayed which was clearer as the day became darker....More

This is a fountain in the warmer months but the changing faces still make this a fun attraction in the winter months.

Very original and nice fountain but only in the summer. It is awsome to people and children running in the water beyond the changing face on the water screen

Crown Fountain is not a swimming pool. It never gets deeper than your ankle. Nobody changes into bathing suits. They wade and kick and splash and little ones think it's heaven. Kick off your shoes and join the fun

The fountain's water feature operates from mid-spring thru' till mid-fall... so I guess it just depends on the weather in any particular year. Mid-fall is so ambiguous!!
