The public is invited to attend the re-dedication of the Meyer Circle Sea Horse Fountain at Ward Parkway and Meyer Boulevard at 4pm on Wednesday, October 25th.
The fountain was taken out of service when continual flooding into the vault containing its pump and electrical equipment rendered it inoperable. Funds for the million-dollar renovations were raised in part by the City of Fountains Foundation and a neighborhood alliance headed by David Fowler. The fountain will now boast a new vault, new plumbing, new lighting, and a repaired basin.
The Meyer Circle Sea Horse Fountain is one of Kansas City's most popular and most visible fountains. Located in the traffic circle at Ward Parkway and Meyer Boulevard, nearly 40,000 vehicles pass by the fountain every day. It will be a great and important event to have water running though the fountain again.
