Loose Lake At 75 acres and located just south of the Country Club Plaza, it is one of Kansas City’s most popular, beautiful and historical parks. The park is well-known locally as being a major site for the #BattleOfWestport (October 23rd, 1864) where #Confederate forces were routed by Union forces in the area in which the park is now located. It is estimated that 29,000 people were involved in the battle. The property at that time was owned by William Bent, a man who led wagon trains and traded with the Native Americans. #urbanparks #greenspace #kansascity #kcmo #missouri #instakc #LoosePark #igkansascity #visitkc #reppinkc #nature #fall #autumn #foliage #sundayfunday #explorekc | KC Parks Instagram Photos
