Not being from Kansas City, I did not know what to expect. There were several piles of firewood and people on boats used a torch to light them. I'm not sure why there was a mermaid on the boat, or why the "fire spinners" had to have costumes. The music was enjoyable, but very difficult to see the performers. The... More

My husband and I took a walk here and it was very nicely spaced and lit up, very pretty scenery and the ducks where so cute and followed us.

This is a nice place for a walk when visiting the nearby Country a Club Plaza. It's a big improvement over the old Brush a Creek. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby.

Want a safe place in Kansas City to walk, bike, or jog away from vehicles and roadways? If so, then Brush Creek Waterway is a place to consider. Pathways along the sides, below street level, offer a place to exercise or take a stroll next to the running water, safely away from cars and trucks that frequent surrounding roads. Brush... More

The Waterway is a huge improvement on the old Brush Creek ! Mr. Pendergast, one of the old families of Kansas City who had a concreting business, had originally lined the creek with concrete. In the late 70's a huge wall of water hit the Plaza area causing much flood damage. All of this due from the Creek and it's... More

It's picturesque in it's location. But I try to avoid actually going down there. Sometimes it smells awful, and often, there are lots of homeless people camped out down there. Still, it's picturesque, just hold your nose

Brush Creek Waterway runs directly through the middle of the plaza. It is a nice sight to see, and is usually kept clean up and down the sides of the creek. The water on the other hand often has garbage floating in it which gives it a dirty feel. It is a nice feature and it's concrete beauty may be... More

They did an outstanding job on last year's Water and Fire presentation, a beautiful evening complimented by an awe inspiring sight.
