Home to a working antique carousel, a miniature golf course that tells Independence history, and a miniature train that circles the park area. Pack up your picnic and plan on a full day of fun and relaxation. This park is free to all who enter. It is also home to the historic Shulthis Stadium, the site where the first lighted organized baseball game was played in 1930. It's always a great day at Riverside Park and Ralph Mitchell Zoo!
