drinking fountain balmain reserve

Balmain Reserve on Devonport’s Cheltenham Beach has been given a makeover by Auckland Council that includes the addition of a mechanised filtered water bowl for thirsty dogs. Pressing a button under the human’s drinking fountain releases water into the ground-level bowl for the canines, presumably so they are not forced to salivate in envy as their owners take liquid refreshment.

Another addition is a small bike rack on the northern border of the domain. The changing rooms have been spruced up and the shower outside the ladies has been replaced with one that can’t be left on, as the old one was so often – creating a big muddy pool.
