Pracht Wetlands Park

​9926 W 29th St N, 67205 | 90 acres

One of the few remaining wetlands in the Midwest, Pracht Wetlands Park provides a safe haven for migratory birds, muskrats, frogs and many other wildlife species while giving visitors a sensory experience with the use of elevated boardwalks, lush vegetation and bird blind structures. Once known as Cadillac Lake, the land was originally used for duck hunting and farming by the Pracht family. The family sold the land to Slawson Companies, who donated 56 acres to the City of Wichita. The Park has won the 2019 KRPA Innovative Program Award and awards from American Planning Association and the American Society of Landscape Architects.
