A mound of grass, a metal whale tale, and a piped spout that sprays quite often. Definitely worth looking at as you drive by on 101. It is on North side of 101, at the South end of commercial district but before the bridge.

There isn't much to see. The park is super small and right along the highway, but it is cute. The first time the spout goes will be a surprise.

We enjoyed watching the intermittent mist shooting into the air to simulate a whale spouting, as we dined nearby in the heart of Yachats.

This park is located along side HWY 101 in Yachats. It is in actuality a sculpture of a whale. The park is designed as the back of a whale with a set of flukes on the south end and a nozzle in the ground that...More

It is always fun to watch the "whale" spout! I love it enough to wait for spout after spout. He was on vacation for the winter when we were there in March but will be back come spring.

I don't know where you'll find another little park with a whale sculpture quite like this one! Just north of the Yachats River, on the east side of Hwy 101, you'll find tiny Whale Park. Don't blink or you really will miss it... Whale Park...More
