A poetic reflection: Cry me a river ,  What the mind forgets the land reclaims 

  • 11th and Hickory 1099-1027 Hickory St Kansas City , Mo 64101 (map)

Guide : Jose Faus 

Time : 1:00 pm

Location : General Information Booth at the Corner of 11th and Hickory , West Bottoms 

Age: 12+  

RSVP: Reserve your spot on the bus at 

Description :  Drive, walk, imagine and reclaim a past between memories, a meandering river, rambling streets - concrete and metal spans. Bring a lunch for a picnic and talk.

We will take a drive and walk through some areas where scenic views reveal how the city has grown away from the river, the bluffs, and the old civic center - turning back on the waterways. We will picnic in Strawberry Hill Park and talk about what it means to be a river town with no connection to the river, and how to inspire and create the atmosphere that weaves a river back into the civic tapestry.
