Carl J. Dicapo Fountain

4212 Cliff Drive (In Kessler Park)

Artist/Designer: Larkin Associates

Installed: 1989

This fountain, named for Carl DiCapo–a Parks Commissioner, restaurateur (Italian Gardens), and community volunteer–is located in Kessler Park on scenic Cliff Drive in Kansas City’s north end. Converted and dedicated in 1989, its composition of natural rock and spring water place it in a unique category. The recirculating waterfall was constructed to draw attention to a natural spring with a rustic cliffside setting. The┬ánatural spring was used by residents of the northeast area in the 1800s and early 1900s as a water supply.
