Summer sun and splashing

TIMES PHOTO: MILES VANCE - Children splash and play in the fountains at Beaverton City Park as the sun sets at 8 p.m. Sunday.The scene at Beaverton City Park on Sunday really had it all.

The late afternoon summer sun was there, filtering through the adjacent pine trees and painting the scene in gold and shadows.

The park's signature fountains were in full flow, sending columns of water shooting 20 feet into the air and reflecting the sun's rays throughout the area.

And as always on sunny summer days, there were children there, playing in the water and around the edges of the fountain area, running, sliding, squealing and splashing.

Beaverton City Park is located in central Beaverton, north of Southwest Fifth Street between Watson Avenue and Hall Boulevard.
