Avila University Fountain

Avila 001

Location:  Avila University, 11901 Wornall Road, Kansas City, MO

Found:  May 15, 2016

This fountain is located on the campus of Avila University in the Jeanne Hamilton Olofson Plaza.  It flanks both sides of the steps leading up to Blasco Hall.  It is at the “front” of the campus and is easily seen from the parking lot there at the corner of Wornall and 118th Street.  The plaza is very open and “roomy” and I imagine that a number of university events occur here.

The two fountains are identical.  They both have four levels with three bubblers in each of the top three levels.  Water starts at the top level at the top of the stairs and flows down to the next level and so on until it reaches the final basin at the lowest level.  Each bubbler has a light next to it and there is a light in the bottom level.  The lights were on when I was out there and I saw most were tinted red and I also saw green and blue.  I imagine it looks pretty good at night.
