At the beginning of my trip, some of the fountains were pink because of breast cancer awareness, but at the end of the trip, the water was blue to support the Royals. I have been to KC twice and do not think that I have seen all the fountains.

We went to all the fountains in one afternoon on our last trip to KC. They are all wonderful. Especially the firemen fountain, which we'd never been to before.

My relatives are always amazed at the number of fountains and art work when they come to Kansas City. They all love the Country Club Plaza area and J.C. Nichols Fountain. They especially love the other fountains, art work, and beautiful homes along Ward Parkway, going south of the Plaza. The favorite seems to be the Venetian fountain at Meyer... More

Beautiful fountains throughout the city. At the time the water was dyed blue to celebrate the Kansas City Royals Baseball team.

There is nothing like sitting on a park bench to enjoy the Kansas City fountains. Not only on the COuntry Club Plaza, but throughout the city. Enjoy. If nothing else, walk the Plaza and take time to hear the water splash and watch the people.

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.

Every part of the city has some from of fountain display. Childrens fountain, Firemans fountain, JC Nicoles (Country Club Plaza area), Northland, etc. Drive Ward Pkwy for Historic huge homes and blvd. full of... More
