The Civic Courtyard Fountain was designed by WET Design, which also designed the Bellagio Fountain.
The Kansas Legends theme has been carried though out the Legends shopping center with statues, paintings & plaques dedicated to over 80 Kansas sports figures, entrepreneurs, explorers, artists, scientists, writers, poets, and politicians. A free self guided audio tour leads visitors through each corridor, providing information about the featured Kansas legends and the artistic representations in which they are depicted.
Even the chain restaurants at the Legends tend to represent small chains or (in the case of the T-Rex Cafe) the first location for the chain.
Although several of the more interesting stores attractions in the Legends have closed in the past few years, there are still many things to do besides eat and shop: games at Dave and Busters, Build-a-Dino, the Legend's 14 theater with its 87' wide screen & luxury seating, free wi-fi and a variety of major attractions in the surrounding Village West. At Christmas time, the Legends has a 45' holiday tree with a synchronized light and music program.
Village West includes Arthur Bryant's World Famous Barbeque, Kansas Speedway NASCAR track, indoor water park, Schlitterbahn outdoor water park, MLS (Sporting Kansas City) stadium, a minor league (Kansas City T-Bones) baseball park, and the largest furniture (Nebraska Furniture Mart) & sporting goods (Cabela's) stores in the region.
