The McCoy Fountain, installed in 2006, marked the first fountain that was located outside of the downtown area of Portland.  This fountain is an interactive and “guessing” fountain; no one really knows when the water will spray out and soak you! The fountain is in an oval shape, with seating ledges surrounding it, re-circulates roughly 8,000 gallons of water, through 35 jets and shoots about 6 feet high!

The park and fountain were named in honor of Bill and Gladys McCoy, political leaders that addressed the minority and low income family issues.  Mrs. McCoy was the first African American to be elected county chairwoman in 1986, and also served on the school board, as well as was the Multnomah County Commissioner. Mr. McCoy was elected to the Oregon Legislature in 1973, the first African American to do so.

Besides the fountain, this park boasts basketball courts, paved walking paths, picnic tables, a playground, and a wading/play pool, the restrooms are also handicapped accessible.
