About Overland Park

Overland Park is the second most populous city in the U.S. state of Kansas. It is located in Johnson County, a satellite city of Kansas City, and is near Olathe, Lenexa, Prairie Village and Leawood. In 2006, the estimated population is 167,500.

In 2006 CNN/Money and Money magazine ranked Overland Park sixth on its list of the 100 Best Cities to Live in the United States. [1]

Overland Park has one sister city, Bietigheim-Bissingen, Germany.

History

The city was incorporated as a first-class city on May 20, 1960, making it one of the youngest communities in Johnson County. Its initial population was 28,085 and was bounded by Antioch Road (West), 107th Street (South), Chadwick (East) and I-35 (North).

In 1960 the population was 28,085 with 17.2 square miles (44.5 km²) incorporated. By 1990 the population was 111,790 and in 1995 the incorporated land area was 56.6 square miles (146.6 km²). Since 1995, the population has since grown to over 167,000 by 2005 with 62.26 square miles (161.25 km²) of land area. Overland Park is now the second most populous city in Kansas.

The city traces its roots back to 1905, with the arrival of its founder, William B. Strang Jr., who platted subdivisions along a military roadway on 600 acres (2.4 km²) he purchased that are now part of the old downtown area.

One of those subdivisions was named Overland Park, and was the site for the first airplane flight west of the Mississippi with shows by the Wright brothers, sponsored by Strang, on December 24, 1909.

Overland Park is home to Sprint Nextel Corporation, Embarq Communications, Inc. communication companies, Applebees, and many other large corporations.

The city is known for its many parks.

Attractions

The city is home to Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, a 300 acre (1.2 km²) arboretum & botanical garden. Examples of ecosystems demonstrated there are dry-mesic prairie, dry oak savanna, riparian woodland, and wooded draws.

Oak Park Mall is one of the area's top shopping locations with Nordstrom, 2 Dillards, Macy's, JC Penney's and over 180 major stores.

The Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead, named after a police officer killed in the line of duty, is a replica of an early 1900s farmhouse. It includes farm animals, gardens, a one-room country schoolhouse, a fishing pond, and horse-drawn wagon rides.

The New Theatre Restaurant, with seating for 600, is the only year-round professional Actors' Equity Association theater in the state.

The John Brown Memorial Statue is hand sculpted statue of one of the most iconic figures in Kansas history, John Brown.

The new Korean War Veterans memorial at 119th Street and Lowell is the latest of the city attractions.
