Platte Landing Park is located at the end of Main Street and adjacent to English Landing Park on the Missouri River. The first phase of the new 140 acre park has been completed. The park includes two miles of trails, two off-leash areas for dogs and a new boat ramp into the main channel of the Missouri River. Platte Landing Park is open daily from 5 a.m. to midnight.
Platte Landing Park is home to Platte County’s first public off-leash dog parks, including a large and small dog park named for their size. The large dog park is 3 acres and the small dog park is 2 acres, both fenced with a double gated entry for safety. The dog parks offer amenities for the dogs to enjoy. No other use is permitted unless by special event permit.
The name “Platte Landing” was given to the park to recognize the important role the Missouri River played in the early development of Platte County as the primary means of travel and commerce. The master plan for the park was created by a citizen’s steering committee with input from county residents through public meetings and surveys. Future phases of Platte Landing Park will be developed as funding allows and include the restoration of over 60 acres of riverfront wetland habitat and the development of recreational baseball and soccer fields.
The City took ownership of Platte Landing Park from Platte County in 2018.
