Pack a lunch, enjoy the fountain. It is cleaner than South Park Blocks. Flying Elephant Delicatessen is just opposite it.

A nice city park with free Wi-Fi. Go to elephants café for some takeout food. There are tables usually available. Sometimes there are performances or outdoor chess. Good people watching.

When enjoying downtown Portland, OR, Director Park is a must-visit destination! This well-designed buzzing urban hub has fun water features for children (and adults, of course!) to splash around in and ample seating and tables for relaxing and people-watching.

This spot in the centre of Portland offers a great fountain for kids to play. This is surrounded by eateries for hamburgers, salads, coffee and other drinks. Sit down and relax.

This is a nice urban Park with free Wi-Fi. It seems like it would be a good place to take young children to briefly play in the fountain. Elephants in the Fox Tower is an excellent place for food.

Pleasant park in the middle of downtown which is miraculously free of the street kids and derelicts who make most Portland parks unusable for the general public. Surrounded by nice places to shop or eat, and a good place to relax
