No Lifeguard on Duty!!!
There are two fairly popular fountains in Wilsonville. One of them is in City Center Park (a photo of the fountain in City Center Park is on my Wilsonville introduction page), and the other is the Murase Plaza Fountain.
As shown in the photograph, the city is very clear about the hazards of water: you are free to play in the fountains, but there is no lifeguard on duty. Therefore, watch yourself and your children to make sure that you do not drown in the fountains!

The Stein Barn, while being named after a local family that homesteaded the Wilsonville area, is perhaps also appropriately named because it has been remodeled as a party space and has a small bar area inside. Though, it is also used to store some equipment for the parks department and in reality the facility is much as it once was.
It is a historical landmark of local interest only, and is located in the central part of Wilsonville's Memorial Park near the playground.
There are several historical markers identifying the significance of the barn and pointing out some interesting other barns in Clackamas County.
Unlike these other structures, however, Wilsonville's Stein Barn is not of particularly unusual shape or size.
