I did not realize this before, but after a little stroll around town it becomes clear that KC is a proud city of fountains. They are really everywhere. Beautiful masterpieces of architecture worthy your attention. The Henry Block Fountain, in front the Union Station and at the foot of the hill of the WWI Museum, is a display choreographed jumping...

There are over 30 fountains to choose from, which are spread all over the city. You will need your vehicle to get around to most of them, but it's worth it. Most of the fountains are very beautiful, but the two favorites for us were the Firemen's Fountain and the Vietnam Veterans Fountain. If you're only going to see two... More

One might not think of Kansas City as a city of fountains but it has more fountains than any place in the US. They are found all over the city. The most abundance of them will be found on the Country Club Plaza with at least one fountain in every block. Absolutely a sight in itself.

Always a favorite place to go when in Kansas City. Head down to the Plaza area and stroll along the beautifully landscaped streets and stop by a shop or two. The fountains are always flowing and beautiful. Take time to sit and relax and watch the water and people pass by. Kansas City is known for it's beautiful fountains. Enjoy!

Fountains are everywhere in Kansas City. They are artistic, different in style and add a very special feel to the city. They give the city delightful european atmosphere. They are also attractive for children at certain age group, they want to take pictures with fountains and keep track of how many they got to see. The Plaza area in particular... More

This is the city of Fountains and it sure is true. Some are unbelievable elaborate and some very simple, but they seem to be everywhere in the city and in the parks. It is a nice thing to see on a hot summer day. Lots of smiling people around them as well.

These fountains make the city lovely day or night. I highly recommend that you take a buggy ride around to see them all. Have not seen a city so beautiful.

It is said that you will find more fountains in Kansas City than Paris. The best fountains are at the intersections of various parkways around the city. The Country Club Plaza has numerous, beautiful fountains.
