About the Fountain 

An Economic and Community Boost

The Children's Fountain was developed entirely with $1.5 million in federal funds awarded to the City for community development. No money is being asked for or paid directly by Gresham residents or businesses.

The fountain is a project of the Gresham City Council to boost the Arts Plaza and increase business activity and private investment in the City's downtown.
