The Kauffman Foundation is committed to harmony with our community and environment. Legacy Park provides an urban greenspace for the education and enjoyment of the public.

Everyone is welcome to enjoy the scenery and the trails, which many take advantage of for their daily jog or dog walk. The park is also home to Kauffman Community Garden, formed in partnership with Kansas City Community Gardens.

Legacy Park was created with a focus on conservation and highlighting native Missouri wildlife. You can expect to see a diversity of plants, birds, insects, and small mammals during your visit.

The lake serves as a stopping point for Canada geese on their annual migration in the fall and winter. Some geese choose to nest in the area and you can see goslings in the springtime.
