In the collection of subdivisions surrounding the Hallbrook Country Club is this fountain. It is in a traffic circle about a block north of West 119th Street and is a few blocks east of the One Nineteen shopping center.
It is a pretty sizable fountain with a stone-rimmed basin, jets in the middle and around the outside. There are four benches sitting around it, spaced out 90 degrees apart from each other.
When I was out there, there were a couple of ducks checking out the fountain. It looked like they wanted to go for a swim but weren’t too sure about the fountain parts. I tried to stay away from them and let them be. I got a little too close and they started to walk away but hopped back up on the ledge after I backed off. They were still there when I left.

As you turn south onto Clare Road off of 119th Street, you first see the fountain and then the waterfall for the Forest View subdivision in Olathe.
The fountain is a kind of mini-waterfall with two pipes, one on either side of the stone Forest View sign, bubbling out water which falls down into the pool below.
The waterfall is impressive. It is very tall and wide. It looks like the water starts at the top and goes down the first fall into a pool or flat area which then runs over to the bottom falls. The waterfall is built into the side of the hill and blends into the natural stone. There are trees, shrubs and flowers planted all around and all is maintained very nicely.

This waterfall is part of the upscale Montebella community and is located north across the street from the entrance to Park Hill South High School on NW Northwood Road. As you can see from the pictures, this thing is massive. The Montebella designers really like their cut stone as they have a large structure and landscaping built out of them at the corner of NW Northwood and Highway 9 to the south. There have been some trees planted between the waterfall and the road and there is a lonely little bench in front of the waterfall as well.
Another nod to my fellow fountain hunter Alexis as she found this waterfall, although it was dry at the time, about a month or so ago. This was the second time I had visited the site and the first time I saw it running.

At the entrance of the Hills of Ironhorse subdivision is this waterfall. The waterfall is flanked on each side by a horse sculpture. Judging by the number of lights, it gets lit up pretty well at night.

As you turn onto NW 76th Terrace into the Silverbrooke subdivision, you are greeted with this sight. This is a very large waterfall feature. There is the main waterfall in the middle with a stream/waterfall branching from the top on each side. I went all around it and on it to capture a lot of pictures. I wasn’t able to get too close to the bottom of the main falls due to it being soft and muddy and I didn’t really want to sink in and get mud all over my shoes.
Twenty pictures total. Tying my record for most pictures at one fountain. The previous record holder is the Gift of Life Fountain.

At the entrance to the Thousand Oaks addition in Parkville sits this large and elaborate waterfall fountain surrounded by landscaping and three stone benches. In the middle of the pool there is a sculpture of four children and a dog walking across a log. There are numerous waterfalls at different levels. I would estimate it is 12 to 15 feet tall in the middle of the structure.
