Kansas City has more fountains than any other city in the world, except Rome, Italy, and this is my favorite.  The Pomona Fountain on Ward Parkway is dedicated to the Roman goddess and protector of vineyards and orchards.

And considering how much I enjoy wine, I need someone to watch over those vineyards on my behalf!

  1. Great perspective. And an interesting fact about Kansas City having so many fountains. Wonder why..

  2. At one point, from March 1975 to March 1993, I was going to Kansas City twice a year because my fraternity, Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity, had its national headquarters there. I was going to the Board of Director meetings, but whenever they had closed sessions, I’d take the morning or afternoon off and explore the fountains. I used to have pictures of hundreds of them, but I lost them all in the Great Hard Drive Crash of August 2005 after I had digitized them and disposed of the printed copies.
