Overland Park Convention Center

Overland Park, in Johnson County, has been ranked as one of the best cities in which to live multiple times in Money Magazine. William Strang, who founded Overland Park with the purchase of 600 acres in 1905, envisioned a city with many parks, good schools, easy access to shopping, and pleasant neighborhoods. He would be proud to see what his vision has become.

Some of the larger employers in Overland Park include Black & Veatch, Waddell & Reed, Examinetics, Farrellgas, Ash Grove Cement, Compass Minerals, Johnson County Community College, Overland Park Regional Medical Center, Shawnee Mission & Blue Valley School Districts, CenturyLink, Ericcson, YRC Worldwide, and Sprint. Sprint has decreased their presence in Overland Park over the last few years. YRC is increasing the number of employees in Overland Park.

Maria, your market reports are always very informative, but I have to admit that what really caught my attention was the map...and wouldn't you know that I had to click on it and navigate to my old home, grandparents home and different sights I miss...all at street view of course...that was the bright spot in my day.
