The Outdoor Discovery Park In Missouri That’s Perfect For A Family Day Trip

Just steps from the Kansas City Plaza shopping district is a natural oasis in this urban landscape. Explore the nearly eight acres of grasslands located in the heart of Kansas City. In addition to the large green space, there is also an educational center on-site. Maintained by the Missouri Department of Conservation, this beautiful outdoor discovery park is a great place to rediscover nature.
