Beautiful Fountains in and around Kansas City

Yesterday we took off to down town Kansas City to see the many fountains in and around the City! At Union Station Karen picked up a brochure that had 28 fountains listed! We didn't make it all of them!! That is for another Day!!! I have wonderful pictures of Union Station I want to share with you later. We had a fun day!! Kansas City has more or as many fountains as Rome!!
Click on the picture to enlarge it.

This is a fountain in down town Kansas City
One of the first fountain located down town Kansas City

You can see Liberty Memorial when you come out of Union Station. It is a Memorial to World War I veterans I think it is the only Memorial to WWI anywhere


The Fountain you see when coming out of Union Station



At the Plaza




This is our most famous fountain at the Plaza! In fact while we were driving by they were holding a wedding!





This is Neptune a fountain on the Plaza






A Lady playing the harp on the street as people pass by. Kelly is taking most of these picture from her car!







Not a fountain but beautiful hanging baskets that were all over the Country Club Plaza








Over looking Swope Park this is where the Kansas City Zoo is and Star Light Theater and many other Kansas City attractions









This is a sea horse and a with a little boy riding the sea horse at Myer Blvd and Ward Parkway

Such beautiful fountains! I love visiting places like this and seeing that harpist playing on the street would have thrilled me no end!! When Steve and I go on trips and I take pictures from the car while he's driving, he calls it "drive by shooting"! lol xoxo
