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!

Loose Park is one of many beautiful parks in Kansas City. It is large, comfortable. It is what a family park in the city should be. There are many facets to Loose Park. It has a well maintained rose garden at one corner. This garden is so wonderful to stroll through. In the early spring especially, the roses are fragrant... More

Went here on a Sunday evening. The park has greenery everywhere. Come here if you plan of spending the weekend lying around on the grass under the tree shade and enjoying the time with your loved ones. The park has a pond and a fountain, and lot of colourful trees.

The park which is located on Wornall Road just south of the Country Club Plaza, has a beautiful rose garden and a shaded and beautiful lake. Grab some sandwiches on the Plaza and spread a blanket and enjoy the peace.

I have gone here just to walk and enjoy the trails. I have gone here with youth groups to enjoy a day of field play. I have gone here on mother's day to spend time with my family. Even in the winter it is just beautiful. Now that we are moving, I think Loose Park is what I am going... More
