9th & Broadway Bench Fountain

9th Broadway 004
Location:  West 9th Street and Broadway Boulevard, Kansas City, MO

Found:  September 21, 2014

Actually found by fellow fountain hunter Alexis Bechtold and she asked me if I knew anything about it.  Despite driving by it numerous times when I was based out of my employer’s downtown office for a few months, I never noticed it until she mentioned it to me.

At street level there is a semi-circular bench under some trees.  The fountains are behind it.  They empty into a pool behind the bench and then that pool empties through the animal’s (I think it’s a lion) head down into a lower pool, which is also located behind a bench.  I believe these areas are meant as rest areas for workers in the building judging by the No Smoking signs present.  If I ever find out if this has a name, I will change the name of this post.

The sculpture “The Descent of Civilization aka Bison Memorial” is just outside the tree covered bench at street level.
