The fountains of Unity Village stretch out the length of a football field and takes up over 14,000 square feet.  There is a large fountain at the west end that have jets of water meeting together in the middle of circular formations.  The east end has a big fountain basin where water bubbles up out of the top and cascades down to the basin below.  In between are fountains and pools.  In the middle of it all is the Bridge of Faith.  There are also gardens located along the walking paths and among the pools.  There are nine other separate fountains located throughout the Unity Village campus but this fountain is the most well-known and is the centerpiece of the campus.

The Unity Village Tower, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, is located to the north.  It is surrounded by a path and a prayer garden.

If you go to the website for Unity Village you can find a streaming webcam for the fountains and various pages on the history of Unity Village, the fountains and the tower, as well as what Unity Village stands for and why it was founded.

Unity Village is just north of Lee’s Summit on the other side of I-470.
