Update: As of Thursday, May 23, 2024
Due to the hard work and dedication of the UG Parks & Recreation Department, UG Staff, and the Board of Public Utilites, the Wyandotte County Lake Park is back open. 

Kansas City, KS – Please be advised that Wyandotte County Lake Park, located at Leavenworth Road and 91st Street, KCK, KS is temporarily closed until further notice. This closure is due to the severe storm damage that occurred on Sunday, May 19. The overnight storm caused extensive damage, including fallen trees, power lines and significant damage to some of the docks.

The safety of the community is our top priority, and it is important that we take the necessary steps to ensure no harm comes to anyone at Wyandotte County Lake Park. Unified Government staff are actively assessing the damage and developing a plan for repairs and restoration.

We will provide progress updates and will notify the public once Wyandotte County Lake Park is safe to use again.

A special thanks goes to the many UG staff that have been working throughout the day to assess and clean up the storm damage at the lake and throughout Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas.
