8 Parks In Kansas That Are Even More Magical In The Wintertime
Winter has definitely arrived in Kansas, and we’ve already had our fair share of snow across the state. There’s a few parks in Kansas that come to mind that become absolutely magical in the wintertime, if you’re brave enough to face the chill.

1. Cedar Creek Park
Winter makes this Olathe park a winter wonderland, with frozen water and snow-covered trees. Rushing water is sometimes heard, but if you're lucky, you can find frozen tendrils of water stopped midair.
2. Cedar Bluff State Park
If you couldn't tell, this park in Ellis was beautiful in the winter, you'll have to see it for yourself sometime. Trees covered in a layer of ice and a blanket of snow covering everything else makes this sparkly park a stunning place to be.
4. Clinton State Park
This park in Lawrence looks dazzling even without a whole blanket, so imagine what it would look like completely covered in white?
5. Cross Timbers State Park
Toronto's Cross Timbers State Park is really stunning, when you see the full span of water completely frozen and covered in patches of snow and surrounded by snowy trees. It's almost like a painting!
6. El Dorado State Park
Here in El Dorado, you might not be thinking about how beautiful a state park can be, but trust me, this stop is worth taking. There's so much winter wildlife to spot here, not to mention the frozen waterfalls you might see if it gets cold enough.
7. Tuttle Creek State Park
Tuttle Creek in Manhattan is another beautiful place that only gets better once the snow comes in. Ice lining the lake makes it feel extra magical as you watch the sunset.
8. Kanopolis State Park
In Marquette, you can look forward to a unique hike that requires a little more skill once it's snowed. Red rocks peek through the snow, and the caves are a welcome break from the wind we're so used to.
