VANCOUVER – The beloved water feature at Esther Short Park (West 6th Street and Columbia Street) has reopened to the public. The Columbia River water feature at Vancouver Waterfront Park (695 Waterfront Way) is still being prepared for seasonal operations with plans to open by the end of May. 

The Esther Short Park water feature is a popular spot for residents and visitors to cool off on hot summer days. The feature includes a waterfall that cascades down a path of boulders, providing comfortable seating for park goers of all ages. The water is typically turned on daily, from dawn to dusk through the summer months.

The water used in both features is continuously circulated and treated; it is not safe to ingest. For more information about operations, rules and safety guidelines at Vancouver’s water features, visit www.cityofvancouver.us/WaterFeatures.
