Riverside Park and Ralph Mitchell Zoo, Independence – Kansas Tuesdays December 31, 2019

This week, I went looking around Independence, Kansas. I chose Riverside Park and Ralph Mitchell Zoo in Independence – https://www.independenceks.gov/199/Park-Zoo as this week’s Kansas Tuesdays post. There are plenty of things to do in Independence and I will be re-visiting it in the future several times.
