Beaverton City Park FountainWhat’s to Love:  Beaverton City Park is located right next to the city library.  We first visited on a very hot day when my son was around 3 years old. As you can see in the first video clip below, he was pretty spooked-out by the vertical row of spraying jets, so he just hung out on the fringes. I literally had to pick him up and run with him through the spray. This is your basic fountain with nothing too fancy, but it certainly can cool you off on a hot day. Plus, it’s a good fountain for all ages.

Rose Garden at Peninsula ParkWhat’s to Love:  A stunning park in north Portland, Peninsula Park offers the whole family something to do with both indoor and outdoor activities.  The rose garden is certainly on-par with the rose garden at Washington Park.  This is my favorite park in north Portland, and it’s definitely worth a drive or bike ride to get there.

What’s to Love: Jamison Square is well-designed, city block in the heart of the Pearl District. The center piece being the water fountain, which attracts pretty big crowds in warm weather. There is a nice patch of green grass for sunning and picnic lunches and/or dinners. Of course, the square is surrounded by shops and restaurants (cheap eats – Hot Lips Pizza), Powell’s Books is close, as well as REI and Patagonia. If you’re not careful, your afternoon at the fountain can end up costing you hundreds of dollars!
