Keller Fountain: Project Update

Keller Fountain Park closed on September 10, 2018, for restoration work. The park will remain closed until late November for this second phase of the park’s restoration work, which includes storm drain, concrete paving, stair handrails, and electrical work all being performed by our contractor, Stacy and Witbeck.  Additionally, Portland Parks & Recreation crews are doing some landscape restoration work. During this time, some pedestrian walkways adjacent to the park on SW 3rd and 4th Avenues, and SW Clay and SW Market Streets will be intermittently closed. Alternative pedestrian routes around active work zones are established.
