Swope Memorial

Coolest place in KC, IMO.

 

Up those old stone steps, is the far, back parking lot to the best public golf course in Kansas City.

 

And I played this course many, many times, and I never had a clue this area was down the parking lot.

 

All of this is in Swope Park. And Swope Park is the KC equivalent of Central Park, except it isn't inside the center of town, like Loose Park.

 

Anyway, the Roman columns are a tribute to Thomas Swope.

 

The view here, particularity looking west, over the KC Zoo, and all the wild sounds heard from a top the hill, is a fascinating urban excursion inside the city limits.

 

Makes for some damn good pix, with a dark green forest, over looking a western sunset.

 

Marvelous stuff, yo.
