Civic Center Park Reflecting Pool

Santa Fe Pool 001

Location:  East Santa Fe Street and Chestnut Street, Olathe, KS

Found:  May 3, 2014

In 2013, the city of Olathe began construction to turn downtown properties into park space.  This lot is across the street to the east of Olathe City Hall and R.R. Osborne Plaza.  There is a small fountain set in amongst limestone blocks and water gently flows from the top pool down to the lower pool.  Along the sidewalks on the north side of the pool are plaques commemorating each of the six Olathe residents who went on to become the Governor of Kansas.  This park was formally opened and dedicated on April 25, 2014.  It is across the street from the Civic Center Park Fountain.

At this time, I do not know if the fountain has a specific name.  After some research, this park and the one across the street are apparently referred to as Civic Center Park with perhaps directional modifers, North and South on them (this one would be the north park if that is so).
