We walked by the fountains while visiting the area. It was nice to enjoy the mist (it was a hot day) and reach all of the information!

While eating lunch at Winstead's, my eight year-old granddaughter asked to go to the fountain, look around, and take pictures. I love how she is interested in Kansas City history and architecture.

The fountain is close to Atkinson museum and plaza area.Best time to visit in the evenings and relax at the fountain. After sunset the color lights add to further beauty of the fountain.A stroll on the adjacent path ways is an added opportunity

In a city known for it's fountains, this is one of the prettiest. It adds to the surrounding area. It is nice to view unclose and from a distance.

This fountain was right outside our hotel and we enjoyed seeing it everyday. It was very peaceful. It is also located in a park like setting where you can walk or ride bikes.

This lovely fountain in a parkway is a refreshing pause before or after shopping on the Country Club Plaza

Its a must see on the plaza. Sit, spend some time. It is a great fountain but just one of many on the plaza and in this city.

this is a short walk down the hill from two major hotels in country club plaza. There are so many fountains to see but this one seems to be the largest and most famous in its own park setting.

A standout fountain in a city of fountains, impressive by day, but romantic by night. There is usually street parking nearby and its walkable from many restaurants.
