Country Club Plaza Walking Guide

In addition to being one of Kansas City’s favorite gathering places, the Country Club Plaza is widely considered a jewel of 20th-century urban design. At 95 years old, the district endures as the most vital and valued part of its regional community, which counts over two million residents and 20 million
annual visitors. Famously designed to embrace the automobile, the Plaza is in fact human
scaled, with rich and layered decoration and detail intended to enchant and reward those
who take the time for a walk and a moment to look around them.  This guide, organized as a series of walking tours and seven short essays, provides entertaining facts and insight on the unique character and features of the Plaza.
