"Salmon Street Fountain" Top 5 Page for this destination Water Front Park Tip by glabah
Water Front Park, Portland: 25 reviews and 45 photos
When it was installed in Waterfront Park, the local newspaper made comments about this likely becoming a commonly used landmark and location for people to meet.
It is a frequently used landmark, and both children and adults love to play in the fountain. However, the mobs of teenagers and others have not shown up. There are some that stay around here, but the crowd is far larger at Pioneer Courthouse Square - most likely because of the nearby shopping malls and department stores.
Originally, the fountain had a large center pillar of water, but it was turned off after several people were injured by running through the fountain and hitting this jet of water.
During certain summer days, the sun light will line up down Salmon Street during sunset, and create some spectacular colors in the fountain.
