This ain't Paris and this ain't Rome. This is Kansas City! I wanted to see some KC Fountains so we headed over to Country Club Plaza where we saw the Four Fawns and Allen Memorial Fountains on Nichols Road. We then headed over to Mill Creek Park to see the J C Nichols Memorial Fountain. That's 3 down, so only... More

I've been enjoying the fountains of Kansas City my whole life. The ones at Country Club Plaza are breathtaking along with all the Spanish architecture there. Beautiful! They have some spectacular ones there and also in front of the Crown Center. Very peaceful and beautiful.

I totally love the fountains in Kansas City. I have heard that Kansas City ranks only 2nd to Paris for the number of statues/fountains. I have no doubt of it. They are numerous and most impressive. I have my favorites but you would have to visit yourself to choose your own....especially worth a drive around the Plaza area.

The County Club Plaza has large and small fountains. It's amazing to walk around the area and explore the art.

If you want to see an array of fountains in a beautiful setting, go to the JC Nichols Country Club Plaza. The Fountain of the Four Rivers is one of my favorites. You can pick up a brochure and take a plaza walking tour that includes the history of the fountains. The plaza was designed to be a "sister," to... More

Everywhere you go in this beautiful city you have a great chance of gunning into a fountain. They range from very classic to the most modern that shoot up from the ground.
