A wide view of Salmon Street Springs in misters and bollards cycle



A wide look at Salmon Street Springs Fountain from inside Tom McCall Waterfront Park. I took this photo on June 4, 2008. Too cool to run around in the misters and bollards on that day.

From the City of Portland Web site:
Salmon Street Springs, Location: Waterfront Park, Naito Parkway at SW Salmon, Hours: 6:00 AM-10:00 PM during spring/summer/fall

Robert Perron Landscape Architects and Planners designed the fountain which was dedicated in 1988. A computer regulates the changing patterns of the water display. At full capacity, the fountain recycles 4,924 gallons of water per minute through as many as 137 jets at once. There are 185 jets. The three cycles of the fountain are called misters, bollards, and wedding cake.

Love this fountain. I wonder how many people run through it in the Summer.
