English Landing Park, the largest park in Parkville, is nestled between the overlooking hills with its downtown historic district and the Mighty Missouri River. The venue of walking trails that parallel the river and the railroad corridor are a scenic treasure like none other in the Kansas City area. The City hosts many festivals throughout the year for families to enjoy in this historic setting.
Parkville welcomes you to come and enjoy the vast array of our City parks and recreation opportunities offered in our historic scenic city.
