This fountain is named for Carl J. DiCapo, a restaurateur and community volunteer. It is located in Kessler Park on scenic Cliff Drive in Kansas City's north end. Converted and dedicated in 1989, the recirculating waterfall was constructed to draw attention to a natural spring with a rustic cliffside setting.

When visiting the Carl J. DiCapo Fountain, please note that Cliff Drive is closed to vehicular traffic on the weekends. The fountain is located about a quarter mile (the address above is approximate) from the intersection of Cliff Drive with Gladstone Boulevard. While you cannot drive to the fountain on the weekend, you can walk, bike or whatever else to it.
