Fountains Flow in Kansas City

KC Fountain Flow: Spirit of Freedom Fountain

As long as I can remember I’ve known my hometown to be the “city of fountains.”  I loved the fountains as a kid and love them even more now. According to the city of Fountains Foundation, the metro has more than 200 officially registered fountains. 

The first municipally built fountain in KC proper was situated at 15th & Paseo as part of George Kessler’s plan to develop this beautiful boulevard.  The fountain which opened in 1899 cost Kessler $12,000 or $366,000 in today’s dollars. 

 
Fast forward and Kansas City’s love for fountains has only grown. The proof is in Fountain Day – the official start of 2018 fountain season! 
 
Join the city on April 17th for this fun and unique KC holiday.  The event starts at 11am with brief entertainment, speeches and the newly renovated Spirit of Freedom Fountain turned on. The community is invited to a reception at Bruce R Watkins Center, 4700 Cleveland Ave. following. This will be the kick off of 48 fountains across the city to flow. 
 
 
Date: April 17th
Location: Emanuel Cleaver II Blvd & Cleveland Blvd
Time: 11:00-12:00
What: Entertainment, fun, fountains!
