Note from the Director

Kelli Votypka, Director

With the challenges we have faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Parks and Recreation has continued to serve the community of North Kansas City to the best of its abilities while making every attempt to keep our residents and community safe.  With the fall and winter season fast approaching, we must consider how to maintain programs and services while practicing social distancing.  We have made modifications or cancelled some of our events this season as we are considering the safety and welfare of our patrons and community. In place of our annual Halloween in the Park event, we will have Mystery Boxes for families of 4 or 6 (see ad on page 9 for details). Mayor’s Tree will consist of a virtual viewing via Facebook Live of the Mayor lighting the tree, holiday themed music, and a reading from Santa. A beautiful winter back drop will be set-up for families to come and take pictures throughout the holiday season. 

Parks and Recreation is striving to bring creative, innovative, hands on art, technology, cooking, and wood working classes to you.  Check out pages 2-4 for all our youth programs and pages 5-7 for adult programs. Safety is priority for our patrons who attend one or many of these classes. Temperature check is taken when you enter the facility, social distancing is practiced, face mask worn at all times, and proper sanitization throughout the class. 

North Kansas City Parks and Recreation Board and Staff strive to ensure you have the best parks, amenities, and services through how well we maintain the park system, staff working diligently on program offerings, and partnering with local businesses and organizations to bring you the best events possible. If you have any questions, comments or concerns please share them at parks_rec@nkc.org

Have a safe and wonderful season!
