Parkville – Town and Nature YRE

About the walk

The 10 KM Parkville walk includes English Landing Park and Parkville Nature Sanctuary.  The first part of the walk will take you through downtown Parkville with its quaint shops and restaurants.  From there the walk will take you to the Nature Sanctuary.  Waterfalls, trees, and wildlife abound in this area.  After exiting the Nature Sanctuary, you will then go through historic Park University campus and its unique underground library and classrooms.

After leaving this educational facility founded in 1875, you will walk to English Landing Park and walk along beautiful trails that skirt the Missouri River.  If you’re lucky you may even see an eagle or two on the banks of the river.  Qualifies for “Platte County” in the Walking MO County Special Program.
