An Abundance of Fountains

Previous post: Portland’s Architectural Mish-Mash

Portland is known as the city of roses, but it could as easily be the city of fountains.

I just wandered about running into them randomly throughout the city, but walking tours will take you past all of them, should you feel the need. While I tend toward to gravitate toward the more modern, the city also hosts a number of more “classic” fountains from bye-gone eras, including the “Elk” with its spouting bears and wildcats.

If you want to see more, the blog “Fountains of Portland” seems to have all the pictures of Portland’s fountains one could ever want.
