  • KC Crew
    It’s hard to make new friends in a park; but, thanks to KC Crew, friendships have been blossoming all over Roanoke Park, One Park Place, and Penn Valley Park. The secret to their success is rec leagues, in which players compete in softball, tennis, and sand volleyball, a beachy sport far preferable to speed eating shells. The organization provides umpires, a game schedule, and a $100 credit at a local bar awarded to the winning team. And after the sun goes down, the organization offers more in-depth studies of the area nightlife through bar crawls, themed to celebrate holidays such as St. Patrick’s Day or simulate a zombie apocalypse.

    The life inside SEA LIFE Aquarium Kansas City's tanks are like a Where's Waldo? book come to life, except the protagonists within the underwater tableau aren't awkwardly dressed like candy canes. Thousands of fish swirl through the waters here and you could easily spend hours picking out specific species. The octopus, on the other hand, swims in open view. So does other marine life?especially once you enter the ocean tunnel, which simulates the experience of walking across the ocean floor. Blacktip reef sharks swim overhead and flash their teeth at the cownose stingrays, who appear to smile back. The aquarium's more interactive attractions explain what makes undersea life so appealing. At the rockpool, for instance, education hosts explain the lives of coastal creatures, letting visitors touch everything in the exhibit, including sea stars and hermit crabs.? Even though SEA LIFE's Kansas City location holds more than 260,000 gallons of water, only so many creatures can call the aquarium home. To help marine life outside its walls, SEA LIFE also runs and participates in many conservation campaigns and programs. SEA LIFE aquariums rescue seals, find permanent homes for disabled sea turtles, and breed nine kinds of seahorses to help protect the endangered species from extinction.
