On the median separating Ward Parkway near 67th Street stands a giant eagle bronze statue. Stephanie Hamil, of Leawood, Kansas, had heard a rumor in high school and asked curiousKC: Who’s responsible for the eagle, and did it really once have ruby eyes?
We contacted The Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department, which handles the maintenance of all city-owned statues in the city, to get the lowdown on the extra large bird.
Roll your cursor over the dots on the picture above to see what we found out. Thanks, Stephanie Hamil, for your eagle-eyed question.
