Here's the fountain at night in a photo that I took on July 2, 2008. I cannot tell for sure if there are lights in the bollards here, but I do remember that Mama and I were in the Buick we used to own. Stopped at the traffic signal, no one behind me, I grabbed my camera and took a few photos. This one shows folks enjoying being together, taking photos, walking along the Willamette River. My work building is the one with the lights on several floors, in the distance directly behind the top of the cycle known as the wedding cake. That's the Hawthorne Bridge you can see in the background, too.

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.
