Note from the Director

Kelli Votypka, DirectorWhat an exceptional year 2019 has been for North Kansas City Parks and Recreation! The center has been open for two full years and is constantly full of activities. Not only is the Parks and Recreation Center a great place to take a DIY class or learn how to cook or knit a blanket, it is a great place for the 55+ community to make friends and engage in social activities. Many residents and non-residents took advantage of the beautiful facility and park setting to host a wedding, reception, baby shower, birthday party, or family gatherings. 

In the parks, we hosted multiple events throughout the year, including our 4th Annual Arts in the Park, exceptional Friday Night Concert series, Movies in the Park, a Wonka-themed Halloween party, and even events for our four-legged companions.

You might have noticed come construction and renovation to our baseball Diamond #2, field upgrades at Waggin' Trail Park and a new obstacle course for little pups. Here at North Kansas City Parks and Recreation, we strive to constantly improve the parks amenities and services we offer. If you have any suggestions or see something that isn't working properly, please email us at parks_rec@nkc.org. We look forward to seeing you at one of our classes or events! Cheers to a fantastic 2020!
