When Coming from the East (from Missouri)

If heading West on Lewis and Clark Bridge (I-70 from KC Missouri), take the Fairfax Exit #423 on the right and down the ramp.

Immediately when you reach the bottom of the ramp you are at #1 Fairfax Blvd. Look for sign on your right on electrical pole on the east side of street; and turn right immediately after the sign into a parking lot (this area called “the Levee”). Head east, into the parking area about 100 yards to the concrete seawall. Turn right, going south now and follow the seawall about 100 yards to the first “Breach” in the flood-wall. The sign at the breach says “Riverfront Park at Kaw Point now under development-Please do not drive off blacktop roads.” Enter the “breach” on the left, through the ten foot wide opening, into large parking area behind seawall. Park along riverfront near iron fence.
