The park property presently consists of 76 acres of land on the south bank of the Kansas River in west Topeka. The area is mostly hardwood forest overlooking the Kansas (Kaw) River, and is adjacent to MacLennan Park and Cedar Crest (the Kansas Governor’s residence) to the east. The Kansas Wildlife and Parks Region 2 Office is also adjacent to the park property. Additional property west of the Region Office building will also include public access for trails.
Kaw River is Kansas’ newest state park and is the only urban type park in the state park system. The property was aquired by donation in 2005 and the park officially opens to public use on September 4, 2010.
