Mission Hills Fountain

Mission Hills 001

Location:  West 56th Street, High Drive and East Mission Drive, Mission Hills, KS

Found:  June 28, 2015

While looking for the Goddess of the Spring, I took a wrong turn and came across this fountain that I did not know existed until today.  It is in a traffic island at the intersection of the three streets listed above.

The fountain features an angel or cherub holding what looks to be a fish of some sort.  Water is coming out of the fish’s mouth as well as from inside the top ring.  The water falls down to the bottom ring and flows over the side into the basin below.  The shrubbery is very obviously cut into a distinct pattern and I have included a Google Map picture below to show what it looks like from above.

The fountain is located in the Mission Hills subdivision in Mission Hills, Kansas.  Until I am able to find another name for it, I will refer to it as the Mission Hills Fountain.  It is located approximately a block or so east of the Mission Hills Country Club and Golf Course.
