Located between the Municipal Auditorium and Marriott Hotel, Barney Allis Plaza has a colorful history. As a park, the Plaza was a congregation point for festivals, street fairs, and carnivals like the 'Elvis Parade' every August. Barney Allis Plaza has since been remodeled into a tennis court. Though not all of Kansas City agrees with this change in landscape, the Barney Allis Plaza Fountains nevertheless create a picturesque backdrop to the sporting spectacles. The question begs to be asked, "Wonder what the Cows On Parade will make of it?"
