The beloved water features at Esther Short Park and the Columbia River water feature at Vancouver Waterfront Park are now open to the public, after being closed last season due to COVID-19.

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 parkgoers of all ages. The water is typically turned on daily, from dawn to dusk.

The Columbia River water feature at Vancouver Waterfront Park is an artistic mapping of the Columbia River featuring cascading water, fountains, and wading areas with nearby bench seating.

Visitors to the water features are asked to follow COVID-19 guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Fully vaccinated people do not need to wear face coverings or practice physical distancing when visiting outdoor water features. People who are not fully vaccinated, including children under the age of 12 who cannot receive a COVID-19 vaccine at this time, should maintain at least six feet of distance from all non-household members and wear a face covering when physical distancing is difficult. People who are showing symptoms of any illness should avoid using the water features until they are symptom-free for at least 72 hours.
