Weston Bend State Park

Park Information

While parks and historic sites are open for day-use, capacity will be monitored closely in order to prevent overcrowding. If nearing capacity, parking lots may close temporarily. Missouri State Parks has implemented a number of measures designed to maintain required social distancing and protect visitors, volunteers and staff. The latest information from Missouri State Parks on COVID-19 can be found here. A full list of temporary closures can be found here.

Not far from the hustle and bustle of Kansas City, Weston Bend State Park offers secluded picnic sites, a campground and sweeping views of the Missouri River from trails and a scenic overlook accessible to persons with disabilities. A 3-mile Paved Bicyle Trail takes hikers and bikers through the park's woody terrain.
