Description

Quality Hill is a renovated area of northwest downtown. A red brick wall divides and gives this fountain two distinct appearances. On one side, water streams down into a pool from five slits made in the top of the wall. The other side features a cascade flowing down into the basin below. Two plaques on either side: Tribute to Godfrey and Blanche Jones; and “To the People of Greater Kansas City on Proctor and Gamble’s 150th Anniversary.” This attractive fountain also graces a beautiful courtyard where workers can enjoy rest and enjoy its beauty.
