Cedar Niles Park

Johnson County, Kansas


This 957-acre mixed woodland and open space park will provide surrounding communities with a unique environmental resource to explore and enjoy.

Prior to joining Confluence, PJ Novick led a master planning effort for the park in 2008 and is now leading the Confluence team to design Phase One Improvements. Planned developments include four miles of trails designed to comply with the US Access Board (ABA) 2014 standards for Outdoor Developed Areas and include four bridges spanning Cedar Creek and three trailheads.

Additional improvements include restrooms, a large group shelter, expansive playgrounds, and ample parking. Once complete in the fall of 2020 this portion of the cedar creek trail will connect to the Confluence-designed Lake Olathe Park trails to the south and will provide over 8-miles of trails for the park user stretching from 119th Street on the north to 143rd Street on the south. The 957-acre site is located west of K-7 Highway in Johnson County, Kansas. The park is currently under construction and is anticipated to be complete in the spring of 2021.
