Master Plan - Cedar Niles Park

The Cedar Niles Park is a 900-acre future park site located west of K-7 Highway. This mixed woodland and open space area is near Lake Olathe and the 300-acre preserve and education site - The Prairie Center.

The master plan for Cedar Niles Park was designed in April, 2008 by consulting team Bowman Bowman Novick, Inc., of Kansas City, Missouri. Two planning public opportunities were scheduled for future park features and ammenities. The public opportunities workshops were held in June and August that year, where plans were reviewed, suggestions were made, and development proposals were submitted.

The Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners considered and accepted the revised master plan at the Committee of the Whole meeting on October 22, 2008.

Implementation of a master plan for the Cedar Niles property is subject to fund availability and board approval in 2018, with projected ground breaking for this site in 2019.
