Shakespeare that's fun! Can be a tad bawdy and a couple of these plans are long. Take a picnic and get schooled on your Will Shakespeare.

More plays ... these are more serious with sets, costumes and the more usual bits.

Fountains

In the summer, Portland's many public fountains are refreshing places for kids to cool off. Here are some of the most popular ones:

Bill Naito Legacy Fountain: The fountain at the end of the plaza built for the Portland Saturday Market incorporates two distinct play areas: a blowhole-dotted section that operates when no events are taking place on the plaza and an adjacent amphitheater that runs more frequently. The blowholes are perfect for toddlers and older kids, and the amphitheater involves a compelling sequence of water arches.
Downtown Portland, north end of Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park

Jamison Square Fountain: The wading pool at Jamison Square is perfect for babies and toddlers, while young kids and tweens will enjoy dangling their feet in the rivulets of water that replenish the pond. Located on the Portland Streetcar line, Jamison Square is easy to access, and there's even an ice cream shop (Cool Moon Ice Cream) across the street and a kid-friendly café (Sip & Kranz) next door.
Pearl District, Northwest 11th Avenue and Johnson Street

Salmon Street Springs: Controlled by an underground computer, this ever-changing fountain overlooks the Willamette River and is a relaxing place for parents to chill while the kids get soaked. Best for kids ranging in age from older toddlers to tweens.
Downtown Portland, south end of Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park

Teachers Fountain by vandegusaTeachers Fountain: Located in downtown's newest public square (Director Park), this fountain delights toddlers with gentle jets and bubbles that fill a shallow basin ringed by low wooden benches.
Downtown Portland, Director Park, Southwest Yamhill Street and Park Avenue
