Leavenworth Landing Park


category : Recreation
Leavenworth Landing Park Located on the Missouri River, the park revives one of the major river landing sites where boats loaded and unloaded travelers and freight. The design of the Leavenworth Landing Park focuses on the role of Leavenworth as the "Gateway to the West", with emphasis on the various modes of transportation that led to the growth of Leavenworth as the major jumping off point for settlers heading west.

The park includes a walking trail, sculptures of a steam locomotive and a Conestoga wagon, a plaza area depicting a railroad round house and steamship paddle wheel, river overlooks, landscaping and parking areas. The Leavenworth Landing Park is designed to provide a beautiful, relaxing place to view the Missouri River, enjoy a walk along its banks, and provide a great place for family fun.
