Just a short distance from the downtown area, the Parkville Nature Sanctuary offers nature trails that are hidden below the dam of Riss Lake. An enlightening area of 40 acres, these trails are for those who beckon for solitude in the backwoods, but in actuality are just minutes away from the hustle and bustle of big city life.
The Nature Sanctuary is located at MO 9 Hwy and 12th Street. It is open one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset. Admission is free to visit, hike, and explore. For more information, please visit our website.
