When you’re searching for a lively community outside of Kansas City, there are few places that can match Overland Park. With numerous restaurants and outdoor attractions, this large community just across the border of Kansas is a great places to settle down in a home or apartment with your family. And, there is plenty going on in the fall, as well.
One popular event that brings any of the Overland Park families together is the Recycling Extravaganza that takes place throughout the year. This fall, the event will fall on October 13th and apartment residents will have an opportunity to take advantage of recycling items like unused cell phones, old confidential documents and even clothing that no longer fits.
Along with annual events, Overland Park has two large community centers where residents can socialize with fellow citizens. For instance, The Matt Ross Community Center is one such facility that is full of gyms, event spaces, and programs for families. This fall, Matt Ross will also be hosting a free and safe Trick-or-Treat Trail on October 28th.
One event that promises to be thrilling and get your children out of your apartment in Overland Park is Night of the Living Farm on October 19th at the Deanna Rose Farmstead located on 13800 Switzer Rd. The cost is only $8 in advance, and there will be a bushel of fun filled activities for kids like a flashlight scavenger hunt, haunted horse-drawn hayride and a haunted barn. Stop by the farm on the weekend of October 26th and 27th, if you miss out on the earlier date.
Since it is autumn, and the leaves are beginning to burst into various hues of bright colors, why not spend the day outdoors viewing art? Much like its larger companion to the north, Overland Park is full of public art. From OP Arboretum to Citizens Bank, residents will find tons of art around the city in plain view for the public.
Next time your sitting around the house this fall, escape outdoors with one or all of these fall attractions headed your way in the coming months.
