The memorial has the spirit, but the city needs to take better care of it. There is lots of vulgar graffiti on the benches. Found the location fairly easy with a short hike. Worth a stop and some great views from the hilltop.

This is an impressive very large arch. It is interesting and very attractive on high location - visible for miles. And when you are there it is very good view. BUT it very hard to get to.

The Rosedale Arch, in Kansas City, KS was designed as a memorial to the Rosedale residents who served in WWI. It is on top of a hill and has a great view of the Kansas City, MO skyline.

I recently took my two kids on a photo tour of KC and the Rosedale Arch was a highlight. The surrounding area isn't the most welcoming, but once you get there the views are phenomenal. Great way to see KC
