What makes it fun
This fountain was given to the city by Miller Nichols, the son of Country Club Plaza developer J. C. Nichols, and was dedicated in October 1967. The neighboring Giralda Tower, which was recently finished and dedicated to recognize the new Sister City relationship between Kansas City and Seville, Spain, inspired the creation of the fountain. The fountain is an identical duplicate of Seville's famed Plaza de la Virgen de los Reyes's la Fuente Farola, a fountain-lamppost. The thirty-foot-tall fountain has an iron lamppost and was fashioned from different types of red and white marble. Before reaching the base's 20-foot reflection pool, water passes through four Roman grotesque masks and scalloped basins.
