Default Are the Lakefront Trail drinking fountains turned on yet?

I'm planning on doing a 10 mile run on the trail this weekend and am wondering if the drinking fountains are functioning yet. I'll probably start at Lincoln Park and run 5 miles south and back.

Thanks for your help!

I doubt it. Isn't it a bit early to be wanting water when you run?

Years ago. I was being sarcastic. The park district just takes there sweet old time turning the fountains on.

Not sure about the fountains, but the trail itself took some really heavy damage from the blizzard. I'm pretty sure it was from Diversey south past North Ave. Not sure if it's been repaired yet, I'd call the park district.
