I plan my run around town to try to see as many as I can. They are beautiful and serene without a crowd. Children love them too.

I stumbled upon a half dozen fountains near or in Country Club plaza. They are a great and give that part of KC a European air.

If you can find the time to walk the plaza and see the beautiful Art, fountains and parks it's an experience you need to have!! I loved doing a tour of the fountains and learning their history! Wonderful experience I'll never forget. Great for single and ready to mingle, couples in love 💘, family's with young kids or teens.

Kansas City is known for its fountains and they are beautiful. The Nichols fountain on the Plaza is probably the most famous, but there are many more. Some are designed to be safe for kids to play in.

When in the City of Fountains, one needs to take the time to see them! They all are very different and each has a story to tell!

Take a drive around the city and the number and variety of fountains is amazing. They run at different times so check with the front desk of your hotel and see if they can help. Bring a camera as they are all different

Were in need of a walk and this was a great place. Lots of room to sit and listen and watch the fountain show in the shade as this was a hot morning.

They are all beautiful. There is one, over in Gladstone, even. they are everywhere & they are all great. Nice to just drive by & see the water spewing. Looks so cool, even on very hot days. Our fountains AND our skyline - best in the nation. I HAVE seen much of the nation. I love America.
