JoCo Park Tour: Frontier Park in Olathe, KS

I know I haven’t blogged in forever but I want to get back to it!  On Fridays this spring/summer we are planning to check out different parks throughout Johnson County, KS  There are a ton of parks so we won’t see them all but hope to hit the high points!  We’ve invited friends to join us and encourage them to invite friends as well.  It’s a great way to strengthen friendships and make new friends.  I dare say mom socialization is more important than kid socialization some days 😉

I had trouble finding pictures of some of the parks we’re going to visit, so I’m going to take pictures of the playgrounds and share them here so that others researching these parks in the future will have more information to go off of than the parks and rec websites which often have outdated or no pictures at all.

Frontier Park in Olathe, KS (aka “the boat park” to my daughter)

Address: 15501 Indian Creek Trail, Olathe, KS 66062

What we love about this park: The pirate ship theme, multiple slides, swings (sadly many parks in Olathe don’t have them any more!).  There are also 2 shelters with picnic tables (cannot be reserved but are usually available on weekday mornings).  There’s lots of green space to run around, a trail, and a baseball diamond.  No bathrooms but there is a port a potty.


Other things to know about Frontier Park:

Featured at this park is the Olathe Free Summer Concert Series.  We haven’t been to one yet but hopefully will make it out this summer.

The Olathe Public Library hosts storytime at Frontier Park during the summer, usually on Tuesday mornings but check their site for more info.
