Haverty Family Yards
This significant new outdoor area – “Haverty Family Yards” – includes a beautiful new full-acre festival space designed for community events, concerts, festivals and a full variety of activities both large and small.
Haverty Family Yards sits in the footprint of the rail yards that served Union Station where 18 separate tracks once accommodated passenger trains arriving and departing. Alongside Haverty Family Yards, trains are still be greeted as they come and go from the Station. And Kansas Citians will soon connect, create, discover and celebrate on this historic site.
From the new Haverty Family Yards – in one sweeping view – guests can see the historic Union Station building, the modern Science City, the downtown skyline and the active Kansas City Terminal tracks where countless daily freight trains of the five major railroads serving Kansas City and Amtrak operate from one part of our country to another. Union Station is a tremendous regional success story and Kansas City’s icon. This new outdoor area adds to and enhances what is already a community treasure.
