Kids at Heart Fountain

Kids at Heart 001

Location:  Hartley’s Plaza, 107 SE 3rd Street (about a half block east of Douglas Street), Lee’s Summit, MO

The sculpture in this fountain is Kids at Heart by Kwan Wu and it represents the first public art installation in Lee’s Summit.  The sculpture shows three children playing in the water, complete with fish and frogs.  The fountains shoot the water at the sculpture completing the scene.

The fountain sits in what is known at Hartley’s Plaza and was one of the final steps in a revitalization project of Hartley’s Block, the history of which can be read on the “newspapers” along the back wall.

The heart used to be a part of a business that was located at the corner of 3rd and Douglas.  It now resides in the plaza and represents the “heart” of downtown Lee’s Summit.
