Birding is most popular

Birding is the most popular activity in the parks. KCPP built exceptional bird blinds at KCNA. Scouts and the parks dept. built hides at JKRB and JSPP.

It's a great time to go birding and wildlife watching!

The parks are filled with wildlife. Head out to KCNA to sit in the blinds and stroll the trails to see what appears. 

Keep Feeding Hummingbirds

Keep your hummingbird feeders full. Hummers are bulking up for their trip south.

 

Good Water at All Three Parks

Take DAD fishing at the park. The river's flowing at JKRB and KCNA and the lakes are full at JSPP.  Time to catch fish.  Remember to bring your fishing license.

KCPP's interpretive signs are found throughout each park. Our interpretive signs are engaging and educationally-sound. They are terrific resources that help visitors understand and appreciate important aspects of the natural and cultural heritage of each park.
