Longview Lake

Longview Beach  Longview Fishing Longview Boats Longview Sunrise

Longview Lake is located on the northeast border of Grandview.

Raytown Road
Kansas City, MO 64128

With more than 1 million visitors each season, it's not hard to understand why Longview Lake has become one of the most popular summer destinations in the Kansas City area. Friends and neighbors are obviously spreading the good news -- and increasing the number of annual guests who head to Longview for everything from power boating and water skiing to fishing, golf, swimming, hiking, softball games and family picnics. Opened in 1986, Longview's 930-acre lake -- featuring a 1-acre beach -- and 4,852-acre site are ideal for active group outings as well as laid-back private gatherings in one of the picnic shelters (several are designated exclusively for corporate/group gatherings). Concessions are available, but coolers are not allowed. No dogs are allowed at the beach.

816 254 2720
Open Hours
May-Aug: Daily 9a-5p


Due to Federal budget cuts, The Truman Farm Home will not be open in the Summer of 2013. Former president Harry S. Truman spent much of his childhood in Kansas City on his grandparents' farm. In fact, his mother often said this farm is where Truman got his common sense. The house, which was built in 1894 for Truman's maternal grandmother, served as his residence from 1906 to 1917 when he worked the farm before leaving for the war. The estate is now owned and operated by the National Park Service. The 5.25-acre farm includes the house and several outbuildings. Admission is free.

Currently, Grandview has 13 parks totaling over 170 acres. The addition of 52 new acres of parkland adjacent to Meadowmere Park brings this total to over 200 acres. In addition to these outdoor facilities, Grandview has recently built a state of the art indoor recreation center (The View Community Center). Other smaller indoor facilities include the Shelton House and the Day Camp Building that provide meeting rooms and activity space for Grandview community groups and recreation programming.
