Really sad to see turtles stuck here - in a cold FOUNTAIN. They need to be in SUNLIGHT where they can bask (like Alice Keck Park), and NOT in a fountain of water where people are throwing in MONEY. Ugh. The courtyard is very shady, and it really saddened us to see kids playing in the water the turtles were in, and the turtles looked miserable.

I am an animal lover, and it really sickened me to see these poor turtles mistreated in this manner. Move the turtles to Alice Keck! Go ahead and collect your coins in your fountain, and gather your money. Not healthy for the turtles and definitely not healthy for children to be playing in that water.

This little street and courtyard has a few places to eat and some shops. It’s a nice stroll and looks like it is from the past.

We ate by the fountain, and at first thought the turtles were sculptures, but they weren't. It's a cool place to stop in.

This small courtyard/mall is a good shady place to grab a meal and relax. It has lots of outdoor tables to sit. If you are with kids they will love to see the turtles.

Beautiful courtyard with high-end shops. Check it out at least to see the turtle fountain. Nice to stroll around on a sunny day.

If you are a lover of turtles, you must swing by this courtyard and visit the turtle fountain! There are so many cute turtles swimming and sunning themselves. So cute!

One of the best stores on State is the Lewis & Clark store in this courtyard. They make a point to offer unique items. And the loosely set brick floor is one of a kind.
