Platte Ridge Park

Managed by Platte County Parks & Recreation

Spectacular panoramic views of Platte County can be seen from the 215-acre Platte Ridge Park.  Completed in 2005, the park offers both sports and leisure activities.  On the sports side, visitors to the park can enjoy soccer, football, baseball, softball and cross country running.

The cross country trail is a 5K grass course with mileage markers every half mile. The best access is from the northwest corner of the pond trail near the family recreation area. The grass course is open to the public during normal park hours unless a community or school event has been previously scheduled. View a map of the course here.

On the leisure side, relaxation can be found at the shelter, playground and fishing pond. The County partners with the YMCA, Platte City and Platte County & West Platte School Districts to provide a variety of programs for every age level.

In fall 2009, Platte Ridge Park was the recipient of a large reforestation effort with over 400 new trees planted on site.  The trees will help protect the park natural resources and improve local water quality.
