Sixty-Ninth Street Fountain

Sixty-ninth Street On 001

Location:  Ward Parkway, between W 68th Terrace and W 69th Street, Kansas City, MO

Found:  May 12, 2016

This fountain was established by the JC Nichols Company in 1930.  It sits in the median of Ward Parkway between 68th Terrace and 69th Street.  Arno Park is across the street to the southwest.  Water bubbles up out of the top of the fountain and eventually falls into the pool below.  The pool is lined with shrubs and flowers.

This is an update post from an old post.  This was the first time I had ever seen this fountain in operation.  The old post had pictures of it not running and I was under the impression that the fountain did not run at all anymore.  Evidently my impression was wrong or it had gotten fixed.  Anyway, pictures of a fountain running as opposed to not running always calls for a new post.
