Connect with Missouri's past. Parks + Rec brings history alive by recreating life in a mid-19th Century Missouri farming village.
Parks + Rec brings the past to life at Fort Osage, which William Clark of Lewis & Clark fame built in 1808 to establish the first military post on what was then the western frontier. There is where Jackson County and the American West got started.
Don't let a mild day this winter go to waste. Grab your jacket and tee it up at one of Missouri's best public golf courses -- Jackson County Parks + Rec's Fred Arbanas Golf Course.
