Kansas City, affectionately dubbed the “City of Fountains,” boasts an array of stunning water features that are as diverse and dynamic as the city itself. These fountains, ranging from majestic to whimsical, not only decorate the city but also tell stories of its heritage, artistry, and commitment to community. Culligan Water of Greater Kansas City, deeply rooted in enhancing the quality and accessibility of water, takes pride in these symbols of beauty and sustainability. 

As water experts, we understand the value these fountains add to our city, mirroring our mission to improve every drop of water that flows into our homes and cityscapes.

The Role of Water in Kansas City

Water is the lifeblood of any city, and in Kansas City, it dances through the streets, squares, and parks, giving life to the stone and metal from which the city’s fountains are crafted. These fountains do more than merely beautify; they cool the air, offer serene spaces for reflection, and serve as gathering places for community events. At Culligan, we see these fountains as reminders of the critical importance of water quality and conservation — principles that guide our work every day.
