City dwellers, families and dog walkers can swap the hustle and bustle for the peace and tranquility of water in a revamped park feature.
The fountains are flowing in front of the Waterloo Park pavilion after the paved area and central water attraction was cleaned up by Norwich City Council.
Margaret Bevan, a volunteer at Friends of Waterloo Park, said the improvements, as well as volunteers, council staff and school children enhancing the flower beds, put the park in a good position to win a Green Flag award this year.
The group was started around 2018 in a bid to improve the Grade II*-listed park off Angel Road.
Ms Bevan said: "It is a dream come true. When we started the group we wanted to get the community involved."
Organised sports teams and fitness classes regularly use the park and the friends group wants to expand recreational space next to the play area and splash pad in the old bowling green area.
