City News: Family Resource Fair | Beaverton Art Mix | New City Park Fountain (Building a Better Beaverton)
New City Park Fountain is coming soon!
We could all use something to look forward to these days, so here’s what’s been going on with our fountain over the past few months.
New fountain jets have been installed, a new pump house has been built, and interior finishing is complete. The new fountain splash pad paver has also been installed. In addition to structural upgrades, the city will add new programmable fountain jets, lights, and sound to further enhance public enjoyment and add a new dimension to all city events which take place in and around City Park.
The playground is now open and the fountain is planned to be complete in October.
Beaverton Arts Mix! Is Oct. 1-17
Join us for the Beaverton Arts Mix! (BAM!) Virtual Art Show and Sale from Friday, October 1 through Sunday, October 17. BAM! artists and their works will be available to view online at www.BeavertonOregon.gov/BAM.
Family Resource Fair Is Back in Person Oct. 16
Beaverton City Library will be bringing back our popular Family Resource Fair in 2021! The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Beaverton City Library Main on Saturday, Oct. 16.
The Family Resource Fair is a great opportunity for families with young children to connect with nonprofit organizations that serve them. In the past, we have welcomed organizations that provide healthcare and wellness resources, education, and recreation, as well as help with housing, food, and energy assistance.
This event is free and will be fun for the whole family! The event will include activities for kids, free giveaways, and a raffle.
A full list of participating organizations can be found on the library’s website, www.BeavertonLibrary.org/FRF.
