Celebrate the Official Start of Fountain Season

Tuesday, April 8 at Eagle Scout Memorial Fountain

Mackenzie Leander

Throughout the country, people are excited that spring seems to have finally arrived. But Kansas City locals have much more than just the spring to celebrate—it’s fountain season. Join the Board of Parks and Recreation Commissioners for Fountain Day, the annual event on the second Tuesday of April when KC’s 48 fountains are turned on for the community to once again admire and appreciate.

This year’s featured fountain is the Eagle Scout Memorial Fountain, a marble monument bordered by two women and an eagle featuring a wreath with the Boy Scout Eagle Badge at Gillham Road and 39th Street. Round up your friends, family and loose change and prepare your wishes for when the fountains come to life at 11 a.m.
