Sightseeing & Recreation

Entertainment isn't always man-made. In Topeka you'll find a large variety of parks, trails and green spaces celebrating the beauty of nature. Venture down the Landon Nature Trail, part of the rails-to-trails movement which converts unused railroad lines to nature trails. Hike through the woods of Kaw River State Park, Kansas' only urban park in the state. Enjoy a picnic at one of Topeka's many parks and playgrounds. You can also kayak the Kansas River, Lake Shawnee, and other areas including Clinton State Park, a gorgeous park sitting between Lawrence and Topeka. 

Whatever your interest, grab your camera and a friend for a fun day of outdoor recreation!
