About Parkville

Beauty of limestone carved bluffs, wooded vistas, and the Missouri River provide an enchanting backdrop for Parkville. The shopping and dining district is a delightful jumble of mid 1800's through 1900's architecture, traditional modest American construction, and new trendy venues. Fanciful buildings touting fresh, colorful facades compliment warm, cobblestone walkways. The old, tired structures from a by-gone era have evolved into a delightful downtown that flirts with the past. New development at Parkville Commons is bringing an exciting synergy with additional shopping, dining, and work spaces touting a small town feel artfully designed to unite old and new.

Landing, village, town, city–Parkville has been all of these. English Landing Center and the picturesque English Landing Park with Riverfront Trail were once just low water areas of the Missouri River. They were named after David English. At one time, the River was an active route for riverboats bringing supplies to town folk and taking products to market. Parkville was even promoted as the ideal gateway to the west.
