"Welcome Plaza Fountain" Independence Off The Beaten Path Tip by glabah
Independence Off The Beaten Path: 1 reviews and 1 photos
In 2008 a new fountain was constructed along highway 51 on the edge of Riverview park. The fountain has "Independence" written on the side of it in large letters, and the purpose of the fountain and the "Welcome Plaza" is to "Welcome people to the City of Independence".
As most of the Riverview city park is not visible from Highway 51 as it is downhill from the road, I am suspicious that the main purpose of the fountain was to make peope slow down and stop and realize there is more to the city than a few stop signs on the highway.
Over the past few years, some modifications to the land north of the fountain has made the fountain and the plaza quite a bit more visible from highway 51 as you are headed south on the road.
