Observation Tower 2.0 opens up in western JOCO

Russell and Helen Means Observation Tower

The newly completed Russell and Helen Means (Kill Creek) Observation Tower in west Johnson County is like something from Tomorrow Land. It’s quite a switch from the old tower located at Shawnee Mission Park.

This new structure is 58′ tall and offers some fantastic views of the surrounding area. The tower is equipped with an ADA Compliant Elevator and a base to top level stair case.



Kill Creek Park is located in west Johnson County on the southern edge of De Soto. During the summer the park is open from 5am-11pm. Great for sunsets and fall leaf viewing.
