Welcome Back!

Starting Monday, May 11th, Downtown Overland Park businesses will be following the Reopen Kansas Framework presented by Governor Kelly. This will look different for each of our restaurants, retailers, and service providers, but we'll continue to share how you can support Downtown OP via our COVID-19 Resource. We're so grateful for this community, and we look forward to seeing you again in person soon.




We will continue to provide updates via social media and our website, but for now, know that your friends in Downtown Overland Park are hard at work collaborating on best practices with our partners in the community.
