Having seen Krug Park several times a year for nearly 30 years I can say I know it in and out, and have seen countless changes over that time. After moving away for several years, however, I was able to bring back someone who had never seen it before helping give a fresh perspective to it. So with fresh eyes,... More

First let me say that St Joseph, MO is a city if parks. Krug Park, is located at the northern end of the Parkway. It is a large (163 acre) city park with Italian Renaissance structures, an amphitheater, a lagoon, extensive landscaping and flowerbeds, as well as a North American native animal exhibits that include buffalo, deer, and longhorn cattle...

As a child we would go to this park on many a Saturday for our family picnics. We moved from St. Joe many years ago, but now 50 years later I still enjoy the drive thru the park and the relaxing atmosphere it brings as we come back on vacations. It is a must go to when I am in... More

This park had a few animals for the kids to see and some equipment for the kids to play on as well as a lake. A nice drive on a One Way road.

Krug Park has been a part of my family for many years. My grandfather was a brick mason and helped put up the first stone fence at the base of the pond. It is no longer there being replaced many years ago. Krug Park also was where we went for family reunion picnics. The bowl is naturally. It has been... More

People from the St. Joseph area love this park. That said, if you are from any other area you might find yourself wondering what all the hype is about. Krug Park is a strange place with its castle-like buildings and tunnels (It has a very interesting history actually). As far as a park to play with your family it is... More

We visit friends in St. Joseph at Thanksgiving every year and as a tradition we take a drive through Krug Park to see the Christmas lights. It is always a wonder. This year the park went with more LED lights and the displays were beautiful. At the end of the park as you are leaving people hand out Cherry Mash's.... More

I love love love the old castle atmosphere of this park! Yes, it's a little run down, but that's what makes it appealing to me. I got married in the gazebo by the pond last year, and all of my family and friends said it was the most beautiful wedding with the swans on the pond in the background and... More

I visited this park last week. It was beautiful in terms of scenery (trees, a small rose garden with gazebo). It had a large pond with geese and ducks. It had two play-areas for kids that were pretty large. It certainly could use some work in some areas, but it was still beautiful in a quaint sort of way. This... More

Have fun feeding the fish & ducks bread crumbs, playing in the leaves, taking fall family pictures, driving through the tunnels & honking your horn, looking at the lights at Christmas, having a picnic, sitting in a swing w/ someone you love, looking at the old castle. Lots of places for great pics!
