Observation Park Fountain

Observation Park 001

Location:  Observation Park, W 20th Street and Holly Street, Kansas City, MO

Found:  February 5, 2016

On the north side of Observation Park is this wall fountain.  You can find it by starting at the intersection of 20th and Holly and taking the sidewalk leading east from there.  You will see a tall block wall with staircases leading up into the park.  This fountain is found at the bottom of that wall.

The fountain does not run.  However, it’s fairly obvious how it worked.  Water came out of the mouth of the lion and into the basin.  Also, due to its secluded location, the city has had problems with graffitti over the years.
