The Lake Park offers a rural retreat within the city limits of Kansas
City, Kansas. In fact, a favorite local use is driving the lake
perimeter road that meanders through this Ozark-like setting. Wild
animals are seen frequently and birdwatchers find many species to
observe. The stocked lake is popular with fishermen. Historic native
stone and timber W.P.A. buildings are patterned after National Park
Effective February 8, 2003, feeding
Canda Geese at Wyandotte
County Lake is banned. The feeder machines will be removed, and signs
will be placed at the south
end informing the public of the ban. Rangers will enforce the ban on
the effective date but only with verbal or written warnings for the
year. After the first year, citations will be issued.
There are many reasons for the ban.
the geese the wrong food can be harmful to them and fosters a "beggar"
mentality. Canada Geese are very smart and
adaptable to any situation. They create erosion problems by eating the
grass and compressing the soil so nothing will grow. Their feces
create safety and health problems. When people feed them, the geese
travel across the road and
create traffic and safety problems. Vehicles either stop or swerve in
the other lane to avoid them. A few
geese can be an asset, but the goose population at our lake is out of
control and creating an environmental and ecological mess.
