The word "fountain" derives from “to flow”. This fountain for playground is filled with water from the rain and naturally flows through a landscape. It breaks with the idea of the stagnated piss pots that proliferate in our cities.
From Middle English; from Old French fontaine (whence modern fontaine);
from Late Latin fontana, from Latin fontanus, fontaneus, adjectives from fons (“source, spring”).
From a Proto-Indo-European root cognate with Sanskrit धन्वति (dhanvati, “flows, runs”), perhaps *dʰenh₂- (“to flow”).
