This sweet park can't be beat! The homes surrounding it are lovely, the Rose garden is alsmot a city landmark. The romance lingers in the air heavily...unless I am picking up pheromones from the joggers...either way, it is an intoxicating place for lovers.

Got some bbq to go and headed to the park. Found a nice picnic table in the shade. Took a walk through the rose garden. Close to the Country Club Plaza area. Nice place to spend some time, take a walk, relax on a nice day.

We visited Loose Park and Rose Garden with family and friends. The day was a perfect park day. James, a little, two-year-old son of our friends spent the entire time playing on the playground, kicking and chasing his ball, and playing catch with his Dad and our son-in-law. The grounds were beautiful. Although most of the roses had already bloomed... More

Located next to the Country Club plaza in a historic neighborhood, great place to walk, run or pass time. Incredible old oaks and hardwoods. Great for alone, friends or family.

My strongest memory of Loose Park is losing my first tooth in the park as a child. We always came to KC to visit family and the bazillion hour car trip from D.C. was always worth it once we saw the fountains and hit Loose Park. Now, as an adult living here I adore watching the seasons change in the... More

The walking trail at Loose Park is well-used and beautifully maintained. There is a lovely pond, and an outstanding rose garden, along with a large playground area with updated equipment for children. We had a great family picnic and then strolled through the rose garden and then down to the pond to see the ducks. A lovely place to visit

Urban parks are a great place to get away from the sounds and stress of the city and they can often provide just the right amount of solace to help you forget the worries of the day. Such is the case with Loose Park, a park located close to Country Club Plaza and the Intercontinental Hotel in Kansas City I... More
