Community Gardens

Woman and son harvesting vegetables

We have three community gardens for our residents to use:

  • Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park - started in 1997

  • Electric Park - started in 2010

  • Scouting Park - started in 2016

Our community gardens stimulate social interaction, produce nutritious food, conserve resources and create opportunities for recreation, exercise and education. Gardeners grow vegetables, flowers and herbs for their own use and to help the community. The gardens also provide demonstrations for you to observe different techniques for growing the same produce at home.

How to participate

We typically have a waiting list to participate in our community gardens. If you are interested in being placed on the waiting list, please email Jenny Doty, jdoty@lenexa.com.

  • Fees are $20 for a 5’x20’ raised bed; $20 for a 10’x20’ plot; and $40 for a 20’x20’ plot.

  • Once you are notified that a plot is available for you, you will be asked to sign the Community Garden Agreement and complete an application.

  • The gardening season is from mid-March to mid-October. During that time, you are responsible for planting, keeping your plot weeded, watered and harvested.
