About Fountains

Kansas city fountain

Welcome to The City of Fountains

Nowhere else but in Kansas City will you find…three men and a woman roaring through turbulent waters on the backs of powerful horses…cherubs and winged sea horses seemingly dancing through raindrops…abstract flames boldly rising above softly cascading waterfalls. And the J.C.Nichols Memorial Fountain is but one of hundreds of unique and majestic fountains that make their home in our City of Fountains.

KC Parks maintains 48 fountains with the city, ensuring that they work, stay beautiful and last forever. The City of Fountains Foundation recognizes the important role our fountains play as sources of beauty and celebration and dedicates its efforts to ensuring the continued development and maintenance of Kansas City’s flowing treasures as well.

Fountain season begins the second Tuesday of April and runs through early November.  Explore all 48 KC Parks fountains online and be sure to visit them in person soon!
