Legacy Park Amphitheatre

Lee's Summit, Missouri

As part of a multi-disciplinary team, Confluence provided design services for improvements to the amphitheatre site at Legacy Park in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. The site is approximately 6 acres in size and located adjacent to the Legacy Park Community Center overlooking the 25- acre Legacy Park Lake. The initial phase of amphitheatre development was completed in 2009 and included site grading, irrigation, electrical connections, walkway and stage pavement, and landscaping.

To begin the project, Webb Management Services facilitated the development of a business plan to help guide the design and operations of the amphitheater. Among the plan’s recommendations are a summer outdoor film series; community events; occasional rentals for events hosted by others; and concessions operated by a third-party. In addition, the plan calls for eventually contracting with a third-party ticket service when a reasonable volume of sales is realized.

The design team developed concepts that respond to the following programmatic elements desired by the City:

  • Expanded parking facilities to support larger concerts and theatrical performances
  • Stage canopy or bandshell to enclose performance area
  • Backstage support facilities for performers and crew
  • Box office structure
  • Restrooms
  • Concessions
  • Infrastructure for sound and lighting control
  • Acoustical control, such as walls and/or a living fence
  • Additional seating areas and walkways
