Nice park along the Missouri. Easily accessed by car or by walking/biking path. Play or just hang out. But bring your bug spray -- it is riverside.

Nice place to be by the water. The sunset was beautiful! The springs are so clear and cold, it’s neat to see the vegetation. There were lots of pelicans hanging out as well.

From the parking lot to the spring it’s 400 yards approximately on a concrete sidewalk. There’s a nice ramp intended for handicap accessible access. I think you should have an enjoyable experience.

You can drive down to and around the general area. To actually see the spring and the beautiful park area you need to walk the developed paths.
