Delbert Haff Fountain Renovations
Kansas City, Missouri
Even in the City of Fountains, the Delbert Haff fountain on the edge of Swope Park stands out as one of the landmarks. Originally funded as a WPA project and dedicated in 1940, the fountain had fallen into disrepair. Vireo’s goal for the design of the renovations was to renovate the entire basin, minimize water usage, ring the pool with a new course of stone and ensure the fountain will be a community treasure for years to come. Several options were presented to the city and construction is currently in progress.
