Community Gardens

The City of Lenexa offers three community gardens for residents:
  • Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park – started in 1997

  • Electric Park – started in 2010

  • Scouting Park – started in 2016

Our community gardens stimulate social interaction, produce nutritious food, conserve resources and create opportunities for recreation, exercise and education. Gardeners grow vegetables, flowers and herbs for their own use and to help the community. The gardens also provide demonstrations to observe different techniques for growing the same produce at home.
