Macken Park - The Jewel of the North

The North Kansas City Parks and Recreation Board is committed to providing the residents and business community of North Kansas City with the best possible environment for family recreation and leisure time enjoyment. Our picnic facilities, walking trail, tennis courts, ballfields and playgrounds are some of the most popular facilities of their kind found in the Northland.

A note from kelli
Director Kelli Votypka
What a beautiful start to 2018 in North Kansas City Parks. We had a fantastic turnout for our first-annual Bob Libbey Pickleball Tournament the weekend of April 13 despite
the unusual weather.

The Second Annual Arts in the Park was held June 8-9. There were amazing artists and makers, wonderful food vendors and incredible entertainment. Be sure to mark your calendar to join us next year, June 7-8, 2019. To keep up with event planning as it begins early next year, like us on Facebook @NKCArtsinthePark.

We’d love to have you join us for some of our FREE family-friendly events offered at Macken Park throughout the summer, including Friday Night Concerts and Movies in the Park. Follow us on Facebook to get all the details!

Finally, throughout the year we have a variety of events where tons of extra hands are needed. Volunteering with us is a great way to make friends, give back to your community and see people of all ages having a great time. If you or your family are interested in volunteering, or for more information, please send a message to parks_rec@nkc.org.

It is great to see everyone enjoying our parks, just keep playing!
