Photo of the Day: Empty fountains

Hance Park

January 2012

This is Hance Park next to the Phoenix public library. What you can’t see in this photo is the homeless population—youth and adults—who spend their days here. They are hidden by the trees or around the corners. That’s how we prefer to keep it, isn’t? Instead of problems to be addressed, homelessness and poverty are realities to keep outside our field of vision.

I’ve been told that the concrete structures at Hance Park used to be working fountains, but city officials shut them off because of sanitation issues with people bathing in the water.
