“Very Cool Park for Cleary Fans”

Beverly Cleary Sculptures at Grant Park
Reviewed 25 September 2015

It's a nice little display of three life size figures: Henry, Ramona and Ribsy. Henry is scowling at Ribsy and Ramona because they are splashing in the puddles (A fountain water feature). My family loved posing for pictures with the statues and my kids loved the little playground with genuine teeter-totters. All the playgrounds we found in Portland had teeter-totters which really impressed my kids. Grant park also has a football field and a running track around it. Maybe that is because it is located right next to U.S. Grant high school. The neighborhood is very fancy and much more upscale and nice that i pictured in my head when reading the books.

There are only three statues in the park, Ramona, Henry and Ribsy. They are cool because of the fountains around each one. There is also a playground nearby for the kids.

We stopped by to see the statues while in Portland last week and they were so sweet. There are little plaques on the ground with all the names of the books Cleary wrote. There were a couple of plaques that were really worn off and we think they were describing the characters of the statues but weren't positive. When we were there, there were a lot of little kids playing in the water as it was shooting out of Ribsy! I would have loved to do the walking tour along with this but we ran out of time!

Spent about an hour at Grand Park this afternoon. We went to visit the sculpture garden and then stayed to spend some time on the playground. When was the last time you had access to old school teeter totters? Grant Park has them!!!
