This is by far the best park in Kansas City, and maybe the best park for hundreds of miles. It is hard to describe this park, because it just gives you a feeling. When I'm walking around this park I feel so relaxed and forget about everything. There is so much beauty to take in. There is the rose garden,... More

This has got to be one of the best city parks in all of America. It is both grand and intimate at the same time.

I happened upon Loose Park while out for a Sunday run. It was easy running distance from Country Club Plaza and very nice to run through and around. It is quite a beautiful oasis in the middle of the city boasting a lake with ducks and geese, romantic bridges, beautiful mature trees and well maintained lawns. There are also play... More

My sister and I took our 1-year-old kids to the Sprayground at Loose Park, which is basically where water sprays out of a bunch of places and kids can just run around and get wet! It is SO much fun on a hot day, and our kids LOVED it. The sprayground is next to the tennis courts on the West... More

I recently visited after being away for several years. The quietness of a city park was amazing. Picnics, football and frisbee games. Pets and children everywhere. Water park, rose garden, playground and pond. A 2 mile walking path that shows the historic war in Westport!

Loose Park is a very pretty large park. The rolling hills, large trees, rose garden, lake, tennis courts, play ground, and walking/running path around the park all make this a great park. Lots of people come here daily to walk, run, or walk their dog. Plenty of open space to sun bathe, play games, picnic, relax, read, meet others, etc.

As a previous Kansas City resident in the Westport area, I cannot possibly praise this park enough. In the summertime, the rolling hills in the park are a perfect place to relax, read a good book, play an instrument, or just spend time with family and friends. The running/walking trails are also amazing - I love the material they have... More

I have been to a few parks across east coast to west coast. Loose Park simply seems Central Park of Kansas City to me. It's beautifully green and serene. There are plenty of spaces to play games, jog, walk out your dogs; even just to seat there and stare at the green. The fountains and the small bridges are beautiful.... More

Such a beautiful and relaxing park to walk through. From the rose garden, fountains, ponds with ducks and bridges it was a wonderful and relaxing way to get away from the city and enjoy the outdoors. Take the time to stroll through this serene park! Stop and smell the roses!

We found by accident. The rose garden was in full bloom and beautiful. Next time in KC will get BBQ to go and have a picnic
