Paralleling Turkey Creek from the Waterfall Park north of Kansas City for 10 miles south to downtown Kansas City, the Turkey Creek Streamway Trail provides useful connections to a number of community features. The trail connects to residential developments, commercial and industrial centers, and public parks. There are plans to extend the trail north toward the Kansas River and into Missouri.
Water fountains are available at Chatlain Park, at the Merriam Farmer's Marketplace and at Waterfalls Park. A handicap accessible porta-toilet is available at Chatlain Park, and there are restrooms at the Merriam Farmer's Marketplace but may be open only when the market is open (Saturdays and Wednesdays May-October, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.) or during other special events.
