    Gladstone offers one of the neatest traditions around. If you have a new baby or have lost a loved one, your donation allows a tree to be planted in one of Gladstone's beautiful parks. Trees are professionally planted in the spring and maintained by the city park and recreation crews. Gladstone has some of the prettiest parks in Kansas City. What a beautiful way to pay tribute to loved ones and to be enjoyed for decades.

    After what must be at least 20 years, it's awesome to see progress as buildings raise from the ground in the South end of the old Antioch Mall. Although Sears and Burlington have remained constant there, new stores will soon be added to the mix. New building, I suppose, is the beginning of the senior living promised there. Some said it would never happen but it's great seeing progress. The entrance boasts where new signage will go. Stay tuned for what happens next!

    Springtime in Kansas City is always a favorite, even more so this year after the winter we have had. Already Bradford Pears with their white flowers line streets everywhere. Forsythia's yellow blooms brighten even cloudy days. Red Buds, a Midwest popular, are just starting to show their glory, too. My peonies, have burst through the hard ground and the tulips are budding. The rain and snow yesterday beat my beautiful magnolia tree already blooming, but I see new buds still hanging on.

    Hopeful that snow is a thing of the past for several months to come and the brown sadness of earth is being replaced by beautiful shades of green and multiple colors in the flowers as NEW LIFE starts once more.

    Whether you are a 300 bowler (turkey) or a novice at the game, Gladstone Bowl offers a clean, well organized establishment for bowlers of all levels. Well maintained lanes and a friendly staff make this a fun place to take the kids for open bowling and they boast some of the best league play in the whole state. We recently had a birthday party gathering at this bowling alley and the kids loved it! Bumper guards were put up so none of the kids got discouraged by gutter balls. We often frequent the grill at the bowling alley for a quick lunch of some of the best burgers, fries and wings in town! And don"t miss out on Taco Tuesday. The service is fast and your food is delivered to the counter with a smile. So, grab the family, step into some shoes, find your ball, and go for the pins! You won't strike out!

    Recent preservation efforts have been amazing as the community and city of Gladstone have jumped in to restore and maintain this historic cemetery located on Pleasant Valley Rd on the north side of the Carriage Hill Subdivision. This old cemetery was part of the Atkins family farm and the first person buried there was an Atkins. Tombstones have been leveled and stabilized after time and a tornado did damage to the area. The wrought iron fencing and gates that protect the perimeter of the site that were once covered with overgrown brush and weeds now stand sentry to those buried there. For years individuals maintained the property to their best ability. After these men became older and unable to take the care like they had previously, they asked for help.. The city of Gladstone took over and through organizational efforts have restored this beautiful piece of ground and its beautiful markers dating back to the early-mid 1800s. As you stand by the many markers and read inscriptions, you will be amazed at how quickly time will pass. It is very intriguing and much worth the time. Stop by. There is a parking lot on the west side of the cemetery and it is well worth stopping and strolling through history.

    I remember when Happy Rock Park consisted of just a few ball fields and a parking lot. I played many softball games season after season in this park. Over the years, Gladstone engaged its innovative spirit and created one of the nicest recreational parks in the Kansas City area. Beautifully manicured and well-lit ball fields complete with dug outs and spectator stands. Well groomed soccer fields, multiple tennis courts, and basketball make this facility a favorite for sports enthusiasts. Walking and fitness trails around the park lead you through some beautiful pathways and showcase spectacular trees and wildlife. Batting cages are available if you need to work on your swing. Shelter houses can be rented for family gatherings and several playgrounds will keep the kids entertained for hours. This used to be my playground. I miss playing softball but love taking the kids by and letting them work off some energy. It is a beautiful complex full of wide open greenways, skies full of sunshine, and shady resting spots Some of my best memories as a young adult were created at this park. Share it with your family and friends. It truly is one of the nicest outdoor gathering places you will find.

    Gladstone's annual Bluesfest provides one of the major one-two punches that Kansas City is known for, Blues and BarBQ. This event, held every June in this bedroom community of Gladstone, is about 15 miles north of the Metro Area. It hosts some of the hottest Blues groups and musicians in the entire city. Surveys have shown that guests from as far away as Canada have enjoyed a cold beer under a starlit night, sitting in their lawn chair and chilling out to the mellow sounds that drift out of Oak Grove Park. It really doesn't get any better than this yearly 2-day event. We've been there for many years helping...we know!

    When I pass Penguin Park on Vivion Road a smile slips across my face. My girls loved going there. Since 1957 the park has entertained our kids and it's all "parent friendly pricing" - FREE. The park sits on 3.42 acres and there is a walking trail and a lake.

    The Penquin is still there but the slide inside has been removed. If you have not spent a day with your kids or grandkids, you have cheated yourself. Don't plan on doing anything after the park visit. Everyone in the back seat will be asleep before you get out of the parking lot.

    No video game has the same action as Penguin Park. Take along a Band-Aid or two. You never know when you might get the urge to join in the fun.

    As a lifelong resident of this charming community that is home to parks, beautiful parkways, business amenities, and great schools I would always encourage this as a place for homebuyers to search for their real estate needs. Often referred to as "Happy Rock" or "Glad Stone" the area is a very friendly and happy place to be called home.

    This fountain at Gorman Park, located at the corner of Vivion and North Oak in the Gladstone area, is the only fountain in Kansas CIty that is left on all year long. Refreshing in the summer and a sight to behold when water spews from the frozen arcs.
