Keller Fountain and Park in Portland

There are many fountains in Portland, but a favorite of mine is the Keller Fountain, situated in a park of the same name in downtown Portland. The central feature of the park is the concrete fountain, which holds 75,000 US gallons (280,000 L) of water, while the waterfalls pump 13,000 US gallons (49,000 L) per minute over the cascade.

The fountain is located at SW Clay and 3rd Ave. across from Keller Auditorium. Keller Fountain Park fills the whole city block.

Angela Danadjieva designed the fountain with inspiration from the stunning waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge to the east of Portland. The fountain was awarded a medallion for design from the American Society of Landscape Architects in 1999.

We loved visiting the fountain this week during an intermission at a Keller Auditorium show. Gotta love how accessible it is--and impressively gorgeous!
