Location: Zona Rosa, Kansas City, MO

The Frog Fountain is located towards the north end of the Zona Rosa shopping area. I had been to Zona Rosa a few times prior but this was the first time I had seen it running. It was undergoing maintenance and repairs last year and so, obviously, is was not in operation. This was the second or third time I had been out this year and finally it was running.
A fun little fountain. The main pool has two frogs on lilypads in the center with five frogs on the outer ring of the pool and each frog is shooting water from its mouth in the direction it is facing. The pool also has its own small jets or bubblers, whichever term you prefer. The fun part is the two pairs of frogs in the planters under the trees. Each set of outer frogs will shoot water from their mouths over the walking path and into the center pool. They shoot the water high enough to where you can walk underneath it, although you’re still going to get a little bit of water on you, especially if its windy. I was able to catch a couple of pictures of the outer frogs in the act.
