The bubbler fills the bowl, so there will likely always be some water available for birds & other wildlife.

I was really happy to see a new bubble/water bottle dispenser in Gough Whitlam Park.  What makes this bubbler especially good is that there is a bowl at the bottom for dogs to be able to have a drink.  Birds will also make use of it. The bottom bowl was full of water this afternoon.

If there is fresh water there will be also be birds & the presence of birds makes any park a much nicer place to be. At least Canterbury Council understands this.

There has been a significant reduction in birds in Tempe Reserve since Marrickville Council removed the tap & fresh water in March 2015.  See – http://bit.ly/1JCVESS  One of the main reasons we used to frequent this park was because we enjoy bird watching.  The emptiness of birds is quite sad.

Concern for the welfare of wildlife is automatic in the design of this bubbler in Bicentennial Park Glebe.  If you want bird life to survive well in the parks some fresh water supply is a must.  I think it is great to see such a compassionate approach to park infrastructure.  I wish all parks in Marrickville LGA had fresh water available for the birds.
