Corbin Park Tower Fountain

Corbin Park Tower 001

Location:  Corbin Park, 6917 W 135th Street, Overland Park, KS

Found:  May 10, 2016

This large and impressive water feature is located next to Sprouts in Corbin Park.  There is a waterfall halfway up the top part of the tower underneath the Corbin Park logo.  It falls down into a pool and then down into the waterfall to the large, irregularly-shaped basin at ground level.  There are sculptures of three horses with fountains in the basin, including one horse that is getting hit with a jet of water right in the mouth.

The tower is actually an elevator.  There is a walkway behind the waterfall where the elevator accesses ground level.  It goes up to a large deck that looks over the fountain.  For those who don’t want to use the elevator, of if the elevator is out of service like it was today, there is a stairway next to the building.

I could not find any specific name for this or any of the water features in Corbin Park so the name is of my doing to differentiate the different features.  If/when I find a specific name for this, I will change the title of the post accordingly.
