If you are visiting Kansas City and you want to experience one of the most peaceful and beautiful spots in the city, this is it. A leisurely stroll through the Plaza and along Brush Creek is the best for scenery and people watching.

Nice place to walk and relax during the day. After dark the area can become a little sketchy though.

I love fountains. This is a stop every time I go to KC and I have family there so you can just imagine how often I have been to this fountain. It is always a good photo op.
