Lovely fountain. Really worth the time to find it and stop to visit a while. Also close to the Country Club Plaza area.

The J.C. Nichols Memorial Fountain is a MUST SEE when visiting the Plaza. It is very beautiful and a great place to take a memorable photo with a loved one.

This is my favorite fountain on the Country Club Plaza. The architecture is grand and the sound of the water can be exhilarating or soothing . .whatever you need at the moment!

Not only is there a beautiful park with walking paths around it, but this wonderful fountain is an amazing sculptural work as well. It rewards long looking, with its symbolic figures representing four major rivers of the world. I have sat in its spray and listened to the music of its water many times. My sister and I called it "the Horse Fountain" when we were small, and even today when I'm hurrying by in a car, I look at it and smile because of the flood of fond memories it brings.
