State Capitol State Park

  General Advisory 06/06/16
The Wall of Water Fountain will be turned on when daily forecast is for 80 degrees or higher. Due to water saving measures, all other fountains will remain closed for the summer.
Symbols represent major park features and activities.  Blue icons mean some or all are ADA accessible.

Major Park Features:
  • Picnicking (ADA)
  • Open Year Round
  • Restrooms Flush (ADA)

The park features not only cherry trees and other plants favored by Oregonians, but tells a little history as well. Stone plaques set in the mall sidewalks list the county seat and establishment date for each of Oregon's counties. On the Willson Park side of the street, flags from every state in the union sit in a circle near the Moon Tree, a state heritage tree. The young Douglas-fir, just north of the flags along Court Street, was grown from a seed carried to the moon by Apollo 14 astronaut Stuart Roosa in 1971.

The grounds include three fountains; Waite Fountain (west of the capitol building in Willson Park), Wall of Water bordering Court Street across from the main capitol entrance, and Capitol Fountain, on Center Street at the north end of the Capitol Mall.
