Location:  Mill Creek Park,  Country Club Plaza, West 47th Street and JC Nichols Parkway, Kansas City

Found:  June 29, 2013

One of Kansas City’s most well-known fountains and generally featured in anything concerning the sights or landmarks of Kansas City.  When the Chiefs are playing a home game, it is almost guaranteed that at least once during the game when they break to or return from commercial, a shot of this fountain will be shown.  Located at the South end of Mill Creek Park.

On July 27, 2013, I happened to be driving by the fountain and noticed that the water in the fountain was blue!

  1. I grew up in KC, but now live in California. This is one of my favorite fountains. Nice blog series you have going. I was looking up some KC info when I found it. Heading back soon to visit my dad who retired from the city’s transportation dept.
