KC Fountain Bus Tours


To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the City of Fountains Foundation, trained volunteer tour guides will give one- and one-half hour tours of the many beautiful fountains and sculptures in Kansas City this summer. The tours are available from May-September* on the third Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. Free parking is available at the Kauffman Gardens at 4800 Rockhill Road where the tours will start and return. 

With over 200 fountains in the city, passengers are sure to see some of their favorites, after they take the guided tour with our trained volunteers. Tour guides have inside information about Kansas City’s iconic fountains that will provide education to the adults and children who attend.

Tours are $20 for adults and $10 for children.


Jim Fitzpatrick

As Board Vice President from 2019 – 2021 and President since April 2022, Jim Fitzpatrick led the City of Fountains Foundation into our 50th year with enthusiasm, excitement and great love for Kansas City, the City of Fountains.

We lost Jim far too soon, in February 2023, just after The City of Fountains book went to press.

With affection and honor, we dedicate it to him.
