Will Rogers Park is a 118-acre area in the northwest portion of Oklahoma City. It has all the park amenities you would want. The northwest portion of this park is a 32-acre area known as Will Rogers Park Gardens and Arboretum, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Developed by the CCC and WPA in the 1930s, one of the projects was to dam two small tributaries of the North Fork River to form two small lakes. These slender lakes, home to huge goldfish, with geese swimming and walking around, are part of the scenic garden area. This fountain is located in the west lake and provides a peaceful atmosphere. On the north side of the lake, an arboretum contains hundreds of large trees, and a beautiful 2-acre rose garden sets to the east of this lake. Footbridges, and a sitting terrace on the south complete this pastoral setting.

Only one log per location per person (meaning multiple visits -> multiple logged visits -> OK!). You should log your own waymarked fountains as well. After all, you did in fact visit the area to which you marked to way.
Even if an individual waymark owner has a requirement indicating a photo is required, it is not. If there is any dispute, contact the category management group for clarification.
