George Owens Nature Park has given families the opportunity to reconnect with their natural environment since 1977. The park is open year round and provides 86 acres of beautiful forest, lakes, hiking trails and wildlife. Explore the rustic nature center and find new seasonal exhibits. Get up close to a snake, touch antlers, or count the rings on a tree. Experience the beauty of a 150 gallon turtle enclosure or peer into a 75 gallon fresh water aquarium display. The possibilities for adventure are endless.
Play outside this summer at George Owens Nature Park - make mud pies, catch frogs, bugs and butterflies. We read, explore outside and make crafts. Offered with support of the Kansas City Public Library. Call (816) 325-7115 for more information.
Please wear clothes you don't mind getting a little dirty, muddy or wet.
