Ilus W. Davis Park, named for the 1960s mayor who was associated with the city’s growth and progress, strengthens the north-south axis and adds softness and color to the government district, often called the civic mall, on the northeast side of downtown. The park includes a large, shallow reflecting pool, a small fountain that flows to the reflecting pool, with a short water feature due to strong winds, flower beds, shrubs and more than 350 trees, including flowering crab, large red oaks and ginkgoes. #FountainFriday #KCParks | KC Parks Instagram Photos
