Kansas City, like Rome, is a city of fountains - there are hundreds of them scattered about the city with a large number of them in the Kansas City Plaza area. The most famous fountain, the one with all the horses, is located at the East end of the Plaza. Keep a sharp eye out as you wander the Plaza... More

Kansas City so well demonstrates a strength of "community". The fountains are a demonstration of having something that enhances life, that adds a level of comfort. Exemplified in the history of Hallmark, and demonstrated through the World War One Museum, the area has demonstrated a service to the citizens and the future. The fountains are fun, who can not enjoy... More

Kansas City is beautiful to visit anytime of year. We get a full four seasons of color here in the Midwest. The fountains flow most of the year, they are shut down in the winter months. The fountains are historical and archetiturally pleasing to the eye. KC likes to have fun with the color of the water by dying the... More

The fountains are kind of cool, but most are small and cheap looking or gaudy unattractive monsters. Many cities may have less, but I'll take quality over quantity. There are a few little gems if you search hard enough.

Loved to see fountains everywhere and the majority were colored blue. Many areas you can just sit around and even see and listen to the dancing waters. and enjoy.

Lovely fountains wherever you look. Nice to see on a walk but not a major attraction in themselves. The country club plaza guide online is a very good source of information.

We saw a few fountains on our drives through town. We need to return to Kansas City and spend more time there so we can find and appreciate more of the city's many fountains.

Kansas City is the city of fountains for a reason. They are plentiful and really something to see. A must see on a trip to KC
