Beaverton City Park fountain to be turned off for maintenance

The water won't flow next week

SUBMITTED PHOTO - The popular fountain at Beaverton City Park will be closed next week for regular maintenance and some tile repairs. It should reopen by Sept. 20.The popular fountain at Beaverton City Park will be dry next week.

No, this is not related to the drought conditions across Oregon.

The fountain will be closed for maintenance beginning Monday and continuing throughout most of the week. It is scheduled to be reopened by Sunday, July 20.

City staff will do regular maintenance to water lines and paving tiles and also will repair uneven tiles.

The fountain, especially popular during hot weather, is next to the Beaverton Farmers Market and across the street from the Beaverton City Library.

If there's a bright side, dipping in the fountain might not have been that appealing next week anyway. The National Weather Service forecasts cooler and wetter weather to move in Monday.
