    Description

    Starlight Theatre is a neighbor to the Kansas City Zoo in Swope Park. Inside the entrance is this fountain and stream which wind along a garden and gazebo. Ten cascades run between eleven red brick columns.  The pool below has over two dozen vertical jets in descending heights as it fades from view. The columns stand 20 feet tall and entire fountain in 180 ft. in length. Owner of Helzberg’s Jewelers, Barnett and Shirley Helzberg, donated $1 million toward creating the site.
