The park hosts a number of events, including an annual paddle-craft race in the summer, as well as speaking and reenactment events.


Friends of Kaw Point Park is now the sponsor of Friends of the Kaw’s “Adopt a Boat Ramp” program and will be hosting litter pickups starting in the spring 2021. We will supply trash bags but suggest that participants wear their own work gloves, study shoes or boots, and long pants. We will also be weeding the rain gardens and maintaining the woodland restoration on those dates.
