Anita B. Gorman Park




Celebrate your union in this historic Kansas City Park dedicated to the philanthropic efforts of Anita B. Gorman. This park boasts artistic exhibitions like the Bridge of Friendship Statue and the majestic display that is the Clay County Veteran’s Memorial. This bronze eagle sculpture and surrounding stone stadium is an iconic Kansas City landmark that any American couple would be honored to make a vow near. Additionally, this 45-acre park features sprawling green meadows lined with stately trees hovering over the fields. Imagine string lights hanging from the branches of the trees and white petals strewn across the green. Hang sheer white voile linens along vintage wooden chairs to highlight the inherent romantic atmosphere of this space. This wide, open park will serve as the ideal spot to design a lovely wedding party. Stone lights peeping out of the ground along the stone paths in this park will illuminate your steps as you walk towards your new life in the arms of your new spouse.
