Category Archives: Sea Horse Fountain at City Hall
Found: May 21, 2015
On the south side of the City Hall building in downtown Kansas City is this double fountain known as the Sea Horse Fountain (not to be confused with the Meyer Circle Sea Horse Fountain). The water starts at the north end from the mouth of the sea horse into the first pool. The water then flows down to the rest of the pools. Each of the remaining pools has a fish head in a seashell that also jets out water into its pool. The two fountains are identical.
This fountain is in need of repair and currently does not run everyday and definitely not on the weekends. This was only the second time I have seen it running and the first where I was able to find a parking spot a reasonable distance away to get pictures. Speaking of parking, remember this is in downtown Kansas City, parking can be tough to find, especially if you go on a weekday.
City Hall is located across the street northwest of the Richard Bolling Federal Building and north of the Jackson County Circuit Courthouse.
