Construction Updates


Restoration Project Update (as of 7/13/2018)

For current construction updates and restoration information resources, please visit the Portland Parks & Recreation website

Keller Fountain

To begin the first phase of repairs, the fountain was turned off on June 25, 2018 to restore the fountain’s concrete basin and walls. The park and plaza will remain open to the public during this phase of work, which will continue through the month of July. We anticipate turning the fountain back on in early August.

In phase two, crews will turn the fountain of again and close the entire park in early September to complete the project. 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 will be established. This phase of work is anticipated to be completed by late November 2018.

The final phase will begin April 2019, when crews put the final touches on the restored fountain and plaza. This work will not significantly impact the public’s access to the park or adjacent streets.

Crews will turn off the fountain, close the entire park, and set up construction fencing on July 23, 2018 to begin work. During this time, some pedestrian walkways adjacent to the park on the SW 2nd and 3rd Avenue pedestrian malls will be intermittently closed. Alternative pedestrian routes around the active work zones will be established. We anticipate reopening the park between late Fall 2018 and early Winter 2019.

The final phase will begin in April 2019, when crews put the final touches on the restored fountain and plaza. This work will not significantly impact the public’s access to the park.
