Richard Berkley Riverfront Park was dedicated October 1998 and opened to the public in March 1999. The 17-acre park is located on the south bank of the Missouri River between the Kit Bond Bridge and Heart of America Bridge.
Once a landfill for construction debris and the former site of a sand and gravel company, the park area now consists of more than 300 trees, a small natural amphitheater and a nearly one-mile long esplanade with period lighting.
The park hosts events such as RiverFest, Kansas City’s annual Independence Day Celebration. Berkley Park is a vibrant connection between Kansas City and its most significant natural asset, the Missouri River.
The park is located at E. Front Street and Riverfront Road in Kansas City, Missouri.
The site is adjacent to approximately 100 acres of developable land controlled by the Port Authority, meaning future tenants will have easy access to beautiful park with sweeping views of the downtown Kansas City skyline, the iconic Kit Bond Bridge and the Missouri River.
