The History of Kansas City, Missouri's Parks & Boulevard System, including Roanoke Park
This Presentation was created by Dona R. Boley and shown at the Exploration of Roanoke Park on May 1, 2010. It has since been added to by Curt Watkins and Pete Browne.
Enjoy the park, and stay safe. While Kansas City's mask mandate has been lifted, our area's vaccination rate and the emergence of new variants calls for maintaining caution to reduce transmission. Please enjoy the park responsibly by spreading out. The Westport-Roanoke Community Center is open again with normal hours after its recent construction closure. Please click their link above and call for the latest info. Here are the latest KCMO COVID-19 updates from the city. To avoid damaging trails, check Trail Status before biking or hiking off road. ("Rozarks" = Roanoke Park's 2.5 miles plus Rosedale's 3.5 miles.)
