Penn Valley Park


lat: 39.076133474178 long: -94.589735550171

With views that overlook downtown Kansas City, this 176-acre park is an urban oasis, perfect for picnics and barbecues.  Penn Valley Park was once a heavily-forested route for pioneers heading west on the Santa Fe Trail.  Kansas City residents admired the historic and charming area and began building a park in the early 1900s.  Memorial Hill, which contains the National World War I Museum and Memorial, is located within this park.  Other monuments include the Pioneer Mothers Memorial and the Hiker.  The park also features a three-acre lake, an off-leash dog park, a skate park, a two-mile exercise trail, tennis courts, and baseball fields.  Take in the sprawling views of Kansas City, or learn more about history in this unique urban park.
