Parkville Missouri

Prescribed Burn Scheduled for Wednesday March 18th

LogoTransparentNotice! This Wednesday (March 18th) Platte Landing Park will be closed for another prescribed burn. Platte Landing Park will be closed until approximately from 9:00 am to 4:00 p.m. If the weather does not cooperate, the burn will be postponed until Friday.

If you are interested in volunteering please call or email Tom Barnard (816-587-2593 or tbarnard@parkvillemo.gov).

The primary reason for the burn is to control the spread of Johnson Grass which is extremely invasive and has taken over 90 plus acres of the park land. The prescribed burn will help the City manage the invasive grass next year as we begin the process of incorporating better suited vegetation for the park area.
