Waterloo, stairs and fountain

This cascading fountain is in the centre of a stairway that leads up from Potter Street to Crown Park, in the inner city suburb of Waterloo. This part of the suburb has been gentrified in recent years with high rise apartments, shops, restaurants, cafes and landscaped public spaces replacing many industrial and warehouse buildings.

  3. They've certainly cleaned up Waterloo since I was last down that way. All I remember is high rise housing commission towers.
