Paris's first sparkling water fountain

Following Rome's lead to cut down on plastic bottles, they have installed their first.

A shame it's not wine.

alas no wine or vodka

A sign in the video says Au Jardin de Reuilly.

I think that is fantastic -
Jardin de Reuilly is a bit far from the tourist crowd ( at the end of Promenade Plantee, OR the beginning depending where you start) but great for the locals.
As long as they don't do away with the beautiful Wallace fountains like the did with the vespasiennes!

OMG, if they'd only get one with champagne, I'd be willing to swim over there to see it!

Jardin de Reuilly was like 30 minutes or less easy walk from the Bastille end of the promenade on the viaduc. I once walked on the bridge over the park.

Cool. I love the small bottles the kids were using, they looked like vodka bottles. Also, loved the guardian's headline: "Eau la la!"

Have you seen the BYO-wine vending machines? We've filled up our own bottles at local wine shops throughout France and Italy to great success but now they're hitting the French supermarkets and may be coming to the US.
