Favorite thing: One of my favorite Kansas City Fountains is in the middle of this traffic circle at the intersection of Ward Parkway and Meyer Blvd. It has one of the largest flows of water of any KC fountain.

Now that Ward Parkway is a major thoroughfare linking the Plaza with South Kansas City, most people fly past here going 50 mph or more. In order to appreciate the fountain, you really should stop. After a series of bizarre and tragic traffic accidents here, there seems to be a move afoot to close off the traffic circle - or even move the fountain to a location where it might be better appreciated.
