About The Downtown Overland Park Partnership

Advancing the marketing, recruitment, physical enhancement and continued redevelopment of Downtown Overland Park.

Downtown Overland Park, Kansas

Located on either side of Metcalf between 78th and 83rd streets in the heart of Overland Park, Downtown Overland Park is an integral part of our community’s heritage. Situated on the historic Santa Fe Trail, it originally bustled with horse-drawn traffic, the famous Steam Electric Interurban Railroad Line, gravel streets, a dance hall, restaurant, dry goods store, blacksmith shop, an aviation park, and other popular amenities that people enjoyed daily.

The City of Overland Park traces its roots back to 1905 with the arrival of its founder William B. Strang Jr., who platted subdivisions along a military roadway. Strang envisioned a “park-like” community that was self-sustaining and well planned. He also sought strong commerce, quality education, vibrant neighborhoods, convenient transportation and accommodating recreational facilities. Strang named one of his subdivisions “Overland Park.”

In the early 1990s, city officials began focusing their efforts on renovating the historic downtown area. The Clock Tower Plaza was dedicated, and the Farmers’ Market Pavilion was constructed.

Downtown Today

More than a century later, Downtown Overland Park’s charming past and small-town flavor have grown into a modern and vast array of nearly 300 locally owned and operated businesses. The area is known as a strong community, focused on great food, the arts, and friendly local businesses lining the walkable streets and close-knit buildings.
