Play in Park Spray Fountains

​Wet, free fun that’s open all summer!

Spray fountains are a fun way for kids and families to stay cool during hot summer weather. As the temperatures rise, cool off and play in one of the City’s spray fountains.

June 19, 2018​—Per Oregon Health Authority and Marion County Environmental Health, measured levels of cyanotoxins in drinking water are below recreational advisory thresholds even for young children. Therefore, no special precautions for recreational splash pads need to be taken. Young children should be monitored to make sure they are not drinking the splash pad water.
