About Ester Short Park
Ester Short Park, in the heart of downtown Vancouver, is Washington’s oldest public square. The 5-acre park has been renovated to be the perfect spot from public events and family activities. “The Pioneer Mother” is a bronze statue and the city’s first piece of public art that still stands at the north entrance of the park. Ester Short Park hosts the Vancouver Farmers Market on weekends, free summer concerts and movies, and the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony. The staff at PeaceHealth Medical Group Plastic Surgery suggests visitors check the park’s schedule so they can watch the story of the Chinook Indians in a Glockenspiel diorama and hear the sounds of the Salmon Run Bell Tower.
