City of Leawood, Revised Parks Master Plan

Location: Leawood, Kansas
Client: City of Leawood

In 2013, Lose & Associates was hired to revise the existing master plan for the City of Leawood, Kansas. The master plan sought to meet the future park needs of its citizens through enhancements to existing parks and the development of newly acquired parkland. The master plan evaluated the current parks, trails and greenways, identified parks and recreational needs with recommendations to achieve the overall goals and capital program for park enhancements for the future.

Phase I of the master plan included an analysis of existing venues including parks, trails and greenways and newly acquired parkland to determine classification and condition, and other services as necessary. Phase 1 work included community meetings, a steering committee workshop, and development of new community park development standards. It also included presentations to the Parks Board and City Council.
