This is one of the more impressive fountains in Portland with multi-level waterfalls. It’s quite soothing and people seem to enjoy its magnificence. Glad I took the time to find it on my route.

Any day and any time when you can find yourself here you will be glad you did. We really feel it is a little oasis in the middle of the city. You can have a picnic here, pose for special pictures or just some selfies....More

Keller Fountain Park is a city park in downtown Portland, Oregon. Originally named Forecourt Fountain or Auditorium Forecourt, the 0.92-acre park opened in 1970 across Third Avenue from what was then Civic Auditorium.

There was no water in the fountains. It did look look architecturally interesting. Disappointed, as it would have been a great surprise right in downtown Portland.

The water wasn't running when I stopped over but I still appreciated the design of the structure and could picture how it would look with the waterfalls. Still cool to take selfies at.

In walking distance to most downtown hotels. Lovely spot to sit and look at the waterfalls. Only downside is that there were a few homeless people there when we arrived early in the am. But that is to be expected in Portland

This is a nice park, just across the street from our hotel, but the homeless people were bathing there the day we walked over. Didn't want to stick around. Beautiful water fountain but be careful!

This fountain's water flows all year round. There are quite a few fountains along the path from here towards the South, where you can also visit Lovejoy Fountain and a couple smaller fountains... We used to play here in the summer when I was a...More

Definitely worth seeing! It's really quite lovely and relaxing to be there. Lots of families were there and even children taking a dip in the fountains. The fountains are huge, far larger than pictures make them out to be.

The park is in downtown Portland,I would be greatly surprised if it was an off leash park. As the park occupies the entire city block and half of that the fountain itself, I am going to answer in the negative. Sorry
