Description:

In 1927, Ella Loose, wife of the late Jacob Loose, donated the land that is now Loose Park to the city to create a park in honor of her husband.  On that land, was a small lake.  In 1964, the lake was beautified in the style of a Japanese garden and a fountain was installed in the lake.  In 1993, after renovating and sealing the lake, the fountain was donated to the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department by the Air-O-Lator Corporation and the Cramer family in memory of Roy A. Cramer, Jr. founder of the Air-O-Lator Corporation.  Air-O-Lator also extended perpetual repair of the fountain at no charge.
