A lifestyle you’ll love.

Life at The Fountains is a good life by any measure. Whether you like to take it slow or are always on the go, you’ll find plenty to celebrate here.

You can spend each day doing what you love in great company. Good food, good conversation, and gracious hospitality are served daily in our on-site restaurant. Pass the time playing cards, learning to line dance, or relaxing by the fountains outside. Better yet, take an interesting class where you might discover hidden talents you didn’t know you had.

There’s always a trip to the farmers market or, for the more adventurous, a hot air balloon ride over the countryside. You’ll enjoy the best Independence has to offer, with the Kansas City sights just a short drive away.
