Located in Parkville, Missouri (ZIP code 64152), Riss Lake sits just off Highway 45 (a.k.a. NW 64th Street or Tom Watson Parkway). The lake itself, nestled in the center of the neighborhood, invites residents to enjoy its tranquil waters (with no motorized boats allowed), while beautiful terrain of the heavily wooded home sites act as a haven for busy residents.

Many homes in Riss Lake even offer walk-out access to the 134-acre lake. These are ideal for lovers of sailing and especially fishing—the lake is stocked full of rainbow trout, crappie, bass, and catfish, and the Riss Lake Fishing Club is very active in the community, hosting tournaments, educational speakers, and parties to exchange fish tales.

Riss Lake manages to feel quiet and secluded, while still being conveniently located—just a couple blocks from Parkville Commons Shopping Center and a few minutes from fine dining.
