We visited on a weekday and enjoyed it. The sculpture has Lewis & Clark & Sacagawea & her baby, York, and a dog. It's up a a ridge overlooking the river. I believe there were picnic tables there.

My wife and I visited on a Sunday afternoon and were the only visitors to this hard-to-find location. If not for the simple map that I had downloaded and printed before my trip, we would have had very little idea of why this park existed,...More

We were visiting the area from Ohio for my husband's working vacation. We decided to explore around the city. We like the outdoors and nature, so it was nice to find a park around the city. Upon entering we realized it's a very industrial area....More

Very interesting. Nice place for family outing and picnic. The metal reliefs of Lewis and Clark give the place a feeling of being there when they were exploring the Northwest Passage.

If you're interested in Lewis and Clark, this is worth stopping at and looking around. The views of downtown KC are pretty good, not spectacular. If you're not interested in L&C, this is a bit out of the way...
