Molamphy Memorial Fountain

Location:  Richard J. Molamphy Park, West 110th Street and Conser Avenue, Overland Park, KS

Found:  June 15, 2014

Back behind the Lighton Towers off College Avenue is this little park named after Richard J. Molamphy, who was an important figure in the history of Overland Park and, especially, the growth of this area of Overland Park.  In the middle of the fountain is a sculpture entitled “Spirit of Dick Molamphy” by Arlie Regier.

On the west side of the fountain is a pergola structure with some benches to sit and admire the fountain.  The pergola is painted white and is usually noticed first as you drive on Conser from either direction.  Last summer, I was here and there were flowers planted around the fountain next to the brick ring.  This year it just looked to be mulched.  Whether flowers are coming later in the summer, I do not know.
