    As a resident of Gardner, Kansas, I can confidently say that it is a great place to call home. Gardner is a small city located in Johnson County, just southwest of the Kansas City metropolitan area. It has a population of around 22,000 people, which gives it a small-town feel while still providing easy access to big-city amenities. One of the things I love most about Gardner is its strong sense of community. The people here are friendly, welcoming, and always willing to lend a helping hand. You're bound to fall in love with this small town as much as I have.

    As a lifelong resident of Kansas City, I watched Olathe grow from a small town just south of the city, into a connected suburb on the southwest part of Kansas City. Right now Gardner is that same city from years ago. Located just a few miles down I-35 from Olathe, Gardner currently has a population of about 20K. The schools are growing and provide high quality services to the residents and there are many fun things to do like visit the Gardner Aquatic Center or nearby Gardner Lake.
