Looking for something to do on a summer evening? Take a stroll on the recently completed Lackman Trail, which safely connects several of Lenexa’s most popular parks and well-traveled trails.

Work finished a few weeks ago on new 10-foot-wide multi-use trail adjacent to Lackman Road from Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park to 95th Street and along 95th Street from Lackman Road to Loiret Boulevard. Construction started in spring 2020.

The project included a pedestrian crossing from Bois D’Arc Park to Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park with a pedestrian island and rapid flashing beacons. To limit the amount of tree clearing, utility relocations and temporary easements, a retaining wall was also built through parts of the project.

The new trail was designed to fill a critical gap in Lenexa’s trail system between Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park and 95th Street. The Lackman Trail connects several excellent Lenexa park amenities, including:

More than half the cost of the $2.5 million project was paid for by Federal Transportation Alternatives (TAP) funds and Federal Construction Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funds.
