A neat little park in the city. If i had a pillow I could have laid my head down and taken a nap with the sweet sound of the falling water. Check it out if you're close.

Great to walk and soak in the view of the Columbia River. Lots of bridges and fountains to see. People watching is always great and we loved walking on a summer day. Crowded but fun!

If you like the serenity of a waterfall this one pleases abundantly, it's sort of a Portland version of Africa's Victoria Falls.

Visited in April and caught this fountain on our way to the airport. It was early enough on a weekday that there was no crowd. Parking is tricky though.

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.

This place is super unique and a beautiful spot in the city! It was a giant playground for my kids, as they leapt from concrete slab to concrete slab. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that I spent the whole time...More

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 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
