Pioneer Courthouse Square is at 701 S.W. 6th Ave., surrounded by S.W. Morrison and S.W. Yamhill sts., S.W. Broadway and S.W. 6th Ave. This brick plaza, previously home to a parking garage, is now a popular gathering spot that hosts more than 300 events a year. A street-side television studio, a waterfall fountain and a selection of public art installations also are available. “Allow Me,” a life-size bronze sculpture of a man offering his umbrella serves as a signature Portland icon, while the whimsical “Mile Post Sign” showcases distances to nine sister cities and other geographical destinations throughout the world.
A semicircle of roughly two dozen rows offers amphitheater seating.
