Day 22: City of Fountains

I bet you didn’t know that Kansas City was the City of Fountains.  Neither did I until I moved here.  Today there are 47 public fountains, plus countless more in business, shopping and apartment complexes.  It is said that the only city with more fountains than Kansas City is Rome.

When we first moved here, Wes and I found out that some enterprising individuals had developed a series of geocaches at the city’s fountains.  We set out a few times to explore them.

We did one at the Meyer Circle “Seahorse” Fountain:

And another at the Ward Parkway Mirror Pool Fountain:

There’s also a nice fountain near the Plaza where the Sunflower Knitters Guild of Kansas goes each year for World Wide Knit in Public Day, the J.C. Nichols Fountain:

Just across the way from my office is the Kauffman Foundation Center with beautiful fountains and gardens:
