Cedar Lake Park / Lake Olathe Park

Olathe, Kansas

 

Consisting of two park master plans, these recommendations establish signature amenities for both sites within the parks and recreation system. 

Confluence simultaneously developed park master plans for two different parks for within the City of Olathe: Cedar Lake Park and Lake Olathe. These master plans included a business model to assist each project in achieving the highest level of financial stability based on projected park investment and the anticipated level of community use. Each park will be connected with a proposed greenway trail to eventually provide linkages with other parks within Olathe’s system.

Cedar Lake is a 129-acre community park that the City acquired in 1920, and originally served as a primary water source for the community with a 75-acre lake. Lake Olathe Park is a 378-acre community park that contains a 170-acre lake, which also served as a primary City water source until 2005.
