The City’s memorial to the Thomas Swope family had seen better years. The fountain was inoperable and had become susceptible to vandalism in its deteriorated condition. The City’s desire to renew its stewardship of the Thomas Swope memorial meant restoration of the fountain. Waters Edge designed the piping and mechanics of the fountain. The piping and lighting were replaced along with a portion of the decking and the original fountain bowl restored. The restoration project returned the historic memorial to its place of honor within Kansas City’s rich fountain heritage.
