Drought Is Over, and the Kennedy Waterfall In Paso Robles Is Back

The Drought Shut Down the Waterfall At Kennedy Adventure in Paso Robles

Everyone, including Kevin Kennedy, had to do their part to conserve water during the drought. That's why the waterfall at Kennedy Adventure was turned off. Here's how it looked in July 2015, dry.

I saw the sign below explaining why the waterfall was dry. I knew I would miss seeing the waterfall, and I did.

I missed all our public water features that made our city beautiful. Even the fountain at the entrance to City Park was dry. The photo below was taken on July 5, 2014.

Last year the city completely took the fountain out. See City Park is Wrapped in Orange. 

Now That the Drought Has Been Pronounced Over, The Kennedy Waterfall Is Back

I noticed it when I went to work out on April 11, shortly after the state lifted the drought ordinances.  First I heard it as I walked in from the parking lot and followed my ears to the waterfall. Then I took my camera out and snapped these photos.

I love the little dragonfly sculptures on the waterfall. Here they are close-up.
