Downtown KC is about to become the home of Kansas City’s newest off-leash dog park at West Terrace Park, 750 Pennsylvania, and you are invited to join in the fun!
You are and your pup(s) are invited to join KC Parks for grand opening Yappy Hour beginning at 4 p.m. Saturday, July 29. Grand opening activities will feature pictures with your dog, pup cake, agility course, dog splash pool, canine art, a cash bar, and more. Treat bags will be available for the first 200 dogs in attendance! Parking will be available at 610 Washington St. The gate house will be manned between 4-6 p.m. to provide access to the lot.
Following the grand opening on July 29, the West Terrace Off Leash Dog Park (WTDP) will be open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. seven days a week.
The fully enclosed, 1.5 acre park will provide a great place for you and your dog to play, exercise and socialize.
The members-only park includes benches (each with their own fantastic view of the West Bottoms and the Missouri River), park stairs, a shade pavilion with picnic tables, key fob entry, disposal bags and receptacles and two drinking fountains.
Membership to the WTDP – which will not be required for the July 29 grand opening – will cost $5 annually, and will include one key fob for entry into the park.
