  • One of the most famous fountains in KC! We have enjoyed it for years! Especially like it when they color the water for the KC Royals!  more »
  • The city in the afternoon is hot, and it gets really hard to walk in the Sun. Taking a stroll downtown, in the Spanish area, you can see the buildings in style, and especially many fountains. In a big, sunny square is the fountain feature, to admire and photograph, but without dwelling too, it melt in the heat!

  • Lovely spot, but was spoiled by a handful of political protestors nearby. Would not let them deter you from enjoying fountain. They were not aggressive, seemed a lame attempt at protest, really.  more »

  • This is a classic KC landmark. It is worth stopping by for some pictures. The pokemon is usually pretty good around here.
  • Very beautiful place in the center of downtown, I relaxed on the bench here for sometime and felt really good.
  • Love sitting here during the summer time and even taking walks around this area. Nice area!
  • Beautiful fountains and surrounding architecture. Great area for poke stops!
  • 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!
