We were lucky enough to have a guide take us around the Plaza area and point out the fountains there and give us a history of each one. It made me aware enough to keep looking for more as we made our way around the city.

they claim to have more fountains than any city except rome. the ones we saw were nice ( some didn't have water in them ) but we weren't awestruck by the number of them. all the fountains were clean - in fact the whole city was clean, but nowhere near the 200 or so that we were expecting.

I had a limited time to view many of these little treasures, but was surprised at how very different and interesting they all were!

Unbelievable fountains all over the city with a big concentration of them on the country club Plaza.

Gorgeous fountains & sculptures all over KC!! The JC Nichols fountain with different color water streams for different events is gorgeous !! Walking through the Plaza is a delight , with great shops, food, drinks and FREE parking! Love this concept! Built to look like Seville, Spain by visionary JC Nichols in the 1920s to 1930s.,.. Be sure to see the Nelson Atkins museum (shuttlecocks out front) that rivals anything in New York or Chicago! KC is a beautiful, safe and friendly place and family friendly too. Lots of history, the arts, sports , something for everyone!
