AKA H & R Block Courtyard Fountain, AKA Elements Courtyard Fountain
This double fountain is located in the Elements Courtyard in the Power and Light District in downtown Kansas City. It is also at the foot of the steps to the H & R Block building. The Elements Courtyard is a seasonal patio bar next to the district clock tower.
The fountain is a double-sided fountain, each side is identical to the other. Water flows out the top and cascades down into the pool. On the ends, there is a stairstep-type structure whereas the middle is much steeper. In the middle of each fountain is a bowl which looks like it can hold any number of things such as lights or any other type of decorations.
The fountain and the patio bar was recently renovated. I went up there earlier this month to get pictures but they were roped off with a sign saying they were under renovation. I took these pictures in the morning on Memorial Day, which accounts for the lack of activity.
It is very hard to get a picture of both fountains at the same time, unless you want to count reflections in the restaurant windows. I climbed up the stairway under the clock tower to get the photos from above and from just the way the fountains are arranged it was still kind of tough to get both fountains in one photo.
