{Throwback Thursday} Circa 1899. The first public decorative fountain as part of Kansas City’s park and boulevard system was located at 15th and The Paseo. It was designed in 1898 by George Kessler, landscape architect and engineer with Kansas City’s Park and Boulevard department and based on a fountain at the Palace of Versailles. It was very large and had problems with water pressure and flow from the first time it was turned on in June 1899. Various repairs and redesigns occurred until it was finally torn out in 1941. #KCParks125 #TBT #throwbackthursday #CityOfFountains #KCParks #Kessler | KC Parks Instagram Photos
