  • Definitely a multi-cultural area. I love getting the bikes and riding through. The fountain is beautiful at night. Good place to go right after PF Changs.
  • Beautiful fountain. Minus one star because it's named after a turbo-racist, though.
  • Beautiful fountain. Very close to nice shops.
  • This is a classic KC landmark. It is worth stopping by for some pictures. The pokemon is usually pretty good around here.
  • What a beautiful place to sit and take in a sunny day! We stumbled upon this fountain after walking the Plaza in the late morning. It was quite the site and a wonderful place just to sit and hang out for a bit. Great people watching and photo ops abound! We came by after picking up some BBQ to go from Jack Stack and had an amazing noon hour! We then returned in the evening to take more pictures when the sun was going down and the place was simply stunning! Many a prom goer was taking pictures and it was a great spot to come after some live Jazz up the street. This is a place I'd bring friends and family for pictures and just to show them something a little out of the ordinary!
