The Historic Lewis and Clark River Front Park at Kaw Point is in the Fairfax District on the north bank of the Kaw just above the confluence with the Missouri River (river mile 367). This public access was completed by Friends of the Kaw volunteers in January 2004.
The access is concrete and lighted with a large blacktop parking lot. The park is open 24-7 and is regularly patrolled. During special events access may be blocked. The park has shaded walking paths on both the Kaw and Missouri Rivers. A historical kiosk explains Lewis and Clark’s visit in 1804. Below the kiosk is an stone amphitheater that seats 500 and overlooks the confluence.
