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.
The City's Parks staff operate the fountain; call 503-618-2300 for more information.
