Missouri—Excelsior Springs

Early inhabitants had great foresight in planning Excelsior Springs. At the beginning of the century they recruited George E. Kessler, the world famous landscape architect to design our parks and boulevard system. We are fortunate to have a more extensive park system than most any community our size. It was estimated that we had over 2,000 acres of parks. They provided playgrounds, picnic areas, bridle and walking paths, a series of swinging bridges so pedestrians could cross the Fishing River, and beautiful landscaping.
