River View Apartments for Rent
The River View neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri, is situated between I-29/US 71 to the east and North Oak Trafficway to the west. It is a settled neighborhood of mostly small, older homes with wide, heavily shaded streets and sidewalks. The homes are well maintained with neatly kept small yards. River View is northeast of the Missouri River, yet only minutes to downtown Kansas City.
At the south end of River View is Macken Park, a 60-acre park with summer concerts, shelters, ball fields, tennis courts, and walking and roller blading trails. A public library and North Kansas City Hospital are also close by.
Five golf courses can found in the area, most notably the Pleasant Valley and Liberty courses.
