On both sides of the building. Clever idea, nice bronze sculptures. Some are in the water on the ledge and in the pools. Nice surprise, great idea whoever thought of them, and made them.

If you happen to be near these sculptures (right across from Pioneer square), check them out as you walk by, but they're not worth going out of your way to see. "Cute" in the best and worst ways, not much to hold on to or...More

Nothing better than a cool pool on a hot day. Sit with the bears on the edge and run your hand in the water as the breeze rustles the leaves overhead.

Several cute animal sculptures.some in rock water containers. The parking on the road is an issue on the weekend we visited. Do not drive in the train or bus lanes!

These animals in pools surround the Pioneer Courthouse and are worth a walk to go see. Even if the pools are not filled w water, they are whimsical and entertaining.

What a fun surprise to come across these wonderful statues and water features depicting local wildlife creatures. Portland has a whimsical heart that makes me smile.

This was really nice, however it was difficult to park between one way street and bus only lanes. Had to walk a couple blocks.

These are a nice surprise for visitors and a fun thing for kids especially in the summer. I liked the bears but my daughter liked the otters.

While adorable, and still worth viewing, construction is happening near these water features, and they are empty right now, and construction fencing is about 2 feet from them.
