  • Large children's playground.
  • Model railroad offers free rides the second Saturday of month, April through November.

The Lake Park offers a rural retreat within the city limits of Kansas City, Kansas. In fact, a favorite local use is driving the lake perimeter road that meanders through this Ozark-like setting. Wild animals are seen frequently and birdwatchers find many species to observe. The stocked lake is popular with fishermen. Historic native stone and timber W.P.A. buildings are patterned after National Park Service plans.

Effective February 8, 2003, feeding Canda Geese at Wyandotte County Lake is banned. The feeder machines will be removed, and signs will be placed at the south end informing the public of the ban. Rangers will enforce the ban on the effective date but only with verbal or written warnings for the first year. After the first year, citations will be issued.

There are many reasons for the ban. Feeding the geese the wrong food can be harmful to them and fosters a "beggar" mentality. Canada Geese are very smart and adaptable to any situation. They create erosion problems by eating the grass and compressing the soil so nothing will grow. Their feces create safety and health problems. When people feed them, the geese travel across the road and create traffic and safety problems. Vehicles either stop or swerve in the other lane to avoid them. A few geese can be an asset, but the goose population at our lake is out of control and creating an environmental and ecological mess.
