SARASOTA, Fla. -- A recent closing of the Children's Fountain on the Sarasota bayfront has some residents questioning the reason for the closure.
The splash park was briefly closed earlier this month due to repairs, the city says.
But ABC 7 has been contacted by a parent that heard the closure was due to illnesses contracted at the fountain. However, officials at the Sarasota County Health Department say they have not been made aware of any problems at the park.
We will update with any more information as we find out.
