Overland Park Real Estate - Overland Park Homes for Sale - Overland Park House Values


There's no overstating Overland Park.

With an Old Downtown reminiscent of its origin as a pioneer city and a skyline to rival any metropolis, Overland Park offers a harmony of quaint living and modern innovations. The city, the second largest in Kansas, was incorporated in 1960. Yet you won't lack for the wonderful accoutrements of the 21st century. Along with the many amenities, you can delight in a home sweet home pleasantness that makes you wonder how anyone lives anywhere else. Not surprisingly, Overland Park is consistently ranked in the Top 10 of Money magazine's "Best 100 Cities to Live in the U.S." In 2009, it was also named one of "The Best Places to Raise Your Kids." What this means is that you'll find great schools, top hospitals, cultural activities, and an array of opportunities for seizing the day—or quietly reflecting on what a wonderful decision it was to move here.

Neighborhoods with the mostest.

Intended to offer residents a park-like community (hence the name), Overland Park is 73 square miles of friendly neighborhoods with homes ranging from modest 2-bedroom ranches to expansive acreage lots boasting even more expansive luxury homes. Something for everyone? Yes, indeed. Subdivisions include: LionsGate, Amesbury Lake, Wilshire Farms, Somerset Brooke, Wilshire South, Wilderness, Wellington Park, Highlands of Kensington, Worthington, Mills Farm, GlenEagles, Estate of GlenEagles, Bentwood Crossing and Bentwood Park, Hampton Place, Deer Creek, Windsor Hills, Nottingham Forest South, Deerbrook, Shannon Valley, Fairway Woods, Wyngate, Leawood Estates, Coffee Creek Crossing, Chapel Hill, Wilderness Valley, Pinewood, Empire Estates, Deer Valley, Brookwood Estates, Blackthorne Estates, Wolf Valley, Polo Fields, and Stonebridge Court. There's also a sister city: Bietigheim-Bissingen, which may or may not earn you a free beer if you ever visit Germany.

More than one way to make a living.

Overland Park is considered part of the larger Kansas City metropolitan area. As such, you'll find many major companies have set up shop here. Sprint Nextel, Applebees, Embarq, YRC Worldwide and the Black & Veatch Corporation all have their fancy headquarters in Overland, perhaps taking Money magazine's advice. They employ from hundreds to the tens of thousands each. The Overland Park Convention Center also brings flocks of business folks to the area. Whatever it is that you do, you can do it here.

All play and no work.

When you wake up on a Saturday morning on Overland and think: "What to do?" here is your answer. The Farmers' Market gathers the heartland's best in a fun-filled mini-festival that's the perfect excuse for getting your daily allowance of fruits and vegetables. The Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens is a 300-acre extravaganza of lovely birds and lovelier flowers so you can commune with nature in the comfort of a civilized space. Nickelodeon named the Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead one of Kansas City's Top Family Attractions in 2008. This 12-acre, free attraction has everything you need to evoke big smiles and wide eyes from the under 12 set, including more than 200 animals, hay rides, a fishing pond, and an early 1900s century school house. But if by creature comforts you mean designer clothes and furnishings, the Oak Park Mall, featuring Nordstroms, Macy's and now Barnes and Noble, will gladly accommodate your needs. Plus the Leawood Town Center's array of exclusive shops is just across the street from Overland Park. Lastly, futbol fans can get their fill of corner kicks and penalty shots at Overland Park's new 12-field soccer complex.

In all, Overland Park is a great place to live. And the nearly 200,000 residents, not to mention Money magazine, tend to agree.

The City of Overland Park's founder, William B. Strang Jr., platted subdivisions along a military roadway. Strang envisioned a "park-like" community that was self-sustaining and well planned. He also sought strong commerce, quality education, vibrant neighborhoods, convenient transportation and accommodating recreational facilities.

Anticipating Overland Park's growth city leaders, in the 1960's, adopted a comprehensive plan to manage growth in the following areas: land use, parks, schools, zoning and housing. They also considered industry, shopping districts and expressways.

The 1960s and 1970s also brought the city Corporate Woods, Metcalf South Shopping Center, Oak Park Mall, a new City Hall and many residential subdivisions. In the 1980s Overland Park experienced a boom in commercial and residential development. By 1988, the city's population surpassed 100,000.

In the early 1990s, city officials focused their efforts on renovating the downtown area. The Clock Tower Plaza was dedicated and the Farmers' Market Pavilion was constructed.
