Cathy Johnson, "Case Park"
by Urban Sketchers
"Case Park is on the 200 foot high bluff that overlooks the confluence of the Missouri and Kaw Rivers – you see two states from here. It’s an old park in the Quality Hill district, said to be the place from which Lewis and Clark made a camp in 1804. There is a massive statue of the two explorers along with Sacajawea and York, as well as plaques (in English & French), but the main reason to come here, for me, is the view.
I used to go there with my dad to watch the planes take off from the old Municipal Airport, just across the Missouri River."
