Swope Memorial Dr, Kansas City, MO 64132, USA

Thomas Swope picked an excellent eternal resting place! You can almost hear the guardian lions roar (sometimes literally - the KC Zoo is just down the hill)!

Curiosity Passport Letterbox status: 



REMINDER: Do NOT tear up the area. The memorial is over 100 years old. The trail walls were most likely built in the 1930s. This box will be removed or moved if damage is done to these historic structures.
Please leave no trace (except the letterbox).

*TIPS: This is a city park & memorial. Please be respectful & discrete.

Please leave it better than you find it (i.e. pick up trash).

There are MANY muggles who visit the park & memorial. Please be stealthy when finding & rehiding.

Please rehide well.*
