Ira Keller / Forecourt Fountain
Mo to Sa from 05:00 AM to 09:00 PMFlowing brooks and waterfalls make this fountain a downtown nature excursion. Designed by Michael Lawrence Halprin, the fountain was named for the man who brought urban renewal to Portland. Wading is permitted in most of Portland's fountains, and on hot days you'll find youngsters and older people cooling off in the water. Situated across from Civic Auditorium, this Northwest oasis moves 13,000 gallons of water per minute and attracts businesspeople and families alike. The fountain makes a great meeting spot.
