Portland’s first stretch of hot summer weather is here. Keep cool in Portland Parks & Recreation fountains and neighborhood park splash pads where you can play in the water, located across the city.
|Interactive fountains are open during regular park hours. They are great for playing in, but not for drinking. Like a swimming pool, fountains recirculate treated water. Please help us keep the fountains clean for all to enjoy.|
|Splash pads are open daily from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend, between 11am—7pm.|
