We are committed to enhancing the quality of life in our community through the people, parks and programs we offer. We devote significant effort toward planning to ensure our parks, open spaces, recreation opportunities and facilities will serve Lenexa well today and in the future.
Parks & Recreation and Open Space Comprehensive Master Plan
Park master plans
We have also completed separate master plans for several of our parks and open spaces.
Black Hoof Park
- Lake Lenexa and Black Hoof Park Master Plan: This plan was completed in 2004 as the initial master plan for Black Hoof Park. Phase I included the lake, spillway, trail system, parking, a small shelter and playground.
- Black Hoof Park Phase II Master Plan: We initiated a second phase of improvements for Black Hoof Park in 2011. This plan slightly modified and updated the Park’s Master Plan for this area of the park.
Buffalo Meadows Park
In 1999, the park land near Prairie Star Parkway and Lone Elm Road was master planned. The initial construction included grading, stormwater facilities, parking, a restroom, a shelter and a playground.
We completed much-needed renovations to Freedom Fields in 2014. This included improved vehicle access, additional sports fields, and improvements to existing fields. As part of the design, a master planning process provided the potential for future changes to the park.
Hidden Woods Park
We renovated Hidden Woods Park to address a major need for stormwater improvements. The improvements gave a variety of recreational opportunities for fishing, picnics, walking, and enjoying nature.
Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park
Over its long and rich history, Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park has been built and renovated many times. In 2013, the park was master planned to create a clear and consistent development plan to be used as funding and needs come available.
In 2009, the Lenexa Trails Alignment Analysis focused on future trail alignments and connections on the western part of Lenexa.
