Stopped at the fireman's memorial at night to see it lit up. Pretty to look at. A few homeless people along edge of wall. Came back the next day to walk around park. A homeless man was sleeping along wall. Fountains are pretty. Walked to the scout which had broken bottles and used needles. Watch your step. Beautiful city views.

We live in a land far far away from this HiBoys restaurant, but whenever a need arises to go to Independence we make effort to stop in for their Jr. HiBoy burger with onion rings. Almost too much to eat, but very tasty. The restaurant is always clean and the counter service is always good. We need a HiBoys in... More

Worth more than a drive by - it is a beautiful park with possibly the most impressive fountain in KC.

I walk this path everyday with many others. There is a nice fountain and a few other nice areas, in the evening during summer months groups will come in and set up volleyball goals, soccer goals, etc., play their games and leave. It's very nice if you can handle the area of town that it's located in!

We stopped along J C Nichols Parkway briefly so I could get out and look at the J C Nichols Memorial Fountain for a bit. This was, of course, after spending several hours across the street at the Country Club shopping plaza. Aah, peaceful, but just where was all the official parking for this park? We couldn't find it. And... More

Nothing great or outstanding in this park. It is a nice area just off the Plaza. We have used this parks walking train, but not so much in the evenings any longer. Sometimes there are many youth hanging around in the evenings pestering others.

Lovely park on the edge of Plaza. Lots of room to walk and run with the beautiful Plaza scenery. Especially nice in spring time.

2012, in some ways was not a great year for parks as there was very little rain. At least in KC MO. But local people still love this park for soccer, running, the Mill Creek Fountain & a generally casual atmosphere. There's room to sit, some equipment for a light work-out. A favorite for frisbee, a bit of 2-man football.... More

My son has baseball games here every year. I just don't like area, the feel, I'm not sure if is the feel of the neighborhood, or what. My opinion may be a little bias, as we are always there for baseball games, and the coaches there are not very friendly, lol. There is just not much to it, as far... More
