I would like to introduce you to Downtown Overland Park. It has been said in our local papers that Downtown Overland Park is the "heart and soul" of Johnson County. It is a place were people come together for festivals, parades, celebrations, and bi-weekly Farmers Market days. It is a welcoming, friendly, and safe place.
In the 1990's the downtown area was struggling. Many of the shops sat empty. We are seeing a change for the better. As you drive or walk along Santa Fe Drive you get that "main street" feeling; clocktower, quaint shops, and inviting restaurants line Santa Fe Drive.
My favorite time to stroll around downtown Overland Park is on any given Saturday morning between April and October. Why is that you ask? Music at the Clocktower Plaza, food vendors, families with strollers, and the wide variety of farmers all coming together at the Farmers Market.
Just a short walk south of the Clocktower is Santa Fe Commons Park. The end of September is a fun time to visit this park...Overland Park Fall Festival. Local artist, craft booths, a variety of foods (love the aroma of outdoor cooking), and a parade for the children. Life is good.
