Kansas City boasts some mesmerizing parks all across the city. From adventurous trail walks to riverfront strolls, spring can be welcomed in any of these three locations.

English Landing Park located on the doorstep of Park University and the Missouri River. It has three miles of beautiful trails, which run right along the riverfront, where you can witness stunning views and wildlife during the spring season. Furthermore, if you fancy getting sporty, the park also has disc golf, a soccer field and sand volleyball. There’s plenty of fun for everyone on any occasion.

Loose Park, located just south of the iconic Country Club Plaza in Kansas City, is another great option. Currently the third largest park in Kansas City, Loose Park is one of the most historic parks in the city as it was the location of the Battle of Westport in 1864. Not only does the park have 75 acres of lush green grass to picnic on, it has a rose garden to sweeten any occasion. So, if you want that picture-perfect day, Loose Park is a must.

The third and final pick is Riverfront Park. Showing off tantalizing views of downtown Kansas City, this park is located next to the Heart of America Bridge. Its trails lead to the historic River Market, where you can find some international cuisines to tingle your taste buds. Riverfront Park also has more than 300 trees which blossom in the springtime. Finally, it’s also the host for multiple events throughout the year, such as KC River Fest.

Enjoy Kansas City’s most natural, wonderful parks as the sun comes up for another scintillating spring, while soaking up the vibrant atmosphere in the heart of the Midwest.
