The Water Feature at Esther Short Park | Vancouver, WA

Esther Short Park
Downtown Vancouver, WA

This is hands-down our favorite water play area of the ones we've visited in the Portland area. It's great for littler kids and feels really safe and friendly. There is a little river about four inches deep that runs down over several layers of rock platforms, forming waterfalls. There is also an area with fountains spraying up a couple feet high. A fabulous place to cool off on a hot summer day. Bring something to watch float down the river and over the falls!
