Grab your suits kids, its hot so were going to….

The Irvine Spectrum Center!?!?
There must have been 25 kids playing in the fountains by Target. And the parents packed for this. What’s up with this trend? No more community pools or the beach? Let’s take the kids to the closest outdoor mall and let them play in the water features. In talking with surrounding shop workers, it is a daily thing, and the main destination at the mall. I just don’t get it.
Even more baffling, the Spectrum center posts rules for the fountains. It doesn’t say which fountains though, I checked.
I think I may have to to wade in the main one hot day soon, or just walk through the middle of it, as long as I have proper footware.

    Ohmigod! I thought I was the only one who thought this trend is really weird. No, I don’t get it either. And yes, the fountains are ALWAYS crowded. Did you notice they pack lunches too? Maybe you have to have kids to get it?

    I did that at City Walk when it first opened. I was 12 or 13. I slipped and sliced my foot open. Signs about safety went up about a week later. Yay.

    PWT. Who invited the 909 to The Spectrum anyway?

    There are only a very few public fountains I let my son play in, and they are the type that Dave was referring to, like the one at Fashion Island that kids are supposed to play in.

    Other than that, ew.
