    Well, it looks like Downtown Lees Summit now has an official name: Strother District. Just over about 150 years ago, the town of Lees Summit was incorporated as a plat of land consisting of eleven blocks. This land was originally called The Town of Strother. Hence where the new name, Strother District, came from. In the Strother District you can find restaurants, entertainment, and shops. Some of these are a local ice cream store, a local coffee shop, local restaurants, local craft beer, live music, a speakeasy lounge, annual festivals, annual parades, and much more!

    It’s coming! The plans have been drawn out and are under review. Many bicyclists have been waiting for this for a long time! The planned Hartman Park Trailhead will connect to the very popular new 7.5 mile Rock Island Trail. Ultimately, it will connect to the Katy Trail, the statewide trail. As part of rails-to-trails project, which creates walking and biking trails along some of the out-of-service railroad tracks, the Hartman Trailhead is planned to include the following: bike racks, trail map and information kiosk, bike maintenance station, water fountain, seating, and shade structure. Currently, officials are hoping that a temporary connection trail can be available from the new Hartman Park Trailhead to the Rock Island Trail before the end of 2018. This is all very exciting!

    I have been a Sushi lover for over 20 years, having dined on some of the best while living in Northern California. I've tried several local Sushi restaurants in the Lee's Summit area and would highly recommend Mr Sushi. The fish is always so fresh, portion sizes are generous and its usually not too crowded. Only negative I've experienced in the times we have eaten here is one evening when there were too many people for the waitress to service effectively. The flip side to the name is that it is also a HibachiI style restaurant on the other side! That section is always packed and the aroma as you walk in is delightful.

    Legacy Park is a place like no other! You will find a plethora of athletes and spectators at Legacy Park on any given day during the sports season. Their facilities are amazing. At just under 700 acres, this community park hosts facilities for baseball, softball, football, and soccer. You can also enjoy the three shelters, community center, amphitheater, 22 acre lake, playground, 4.7 mile trail, and fishing docks with scenic views. Legacy Park is home to the following: Sporting Lees Summit, Lees Summit Girls Softball Association, Lees Summit Baseball Association, and Lees Summit Football Association. While watching your favorite athletes and sports teams you can enjoy some great concession stand meals, snacks, and drinks. I believe Legacy Park is truly one of the best youth sport venues around.

    I've been having my nails done here for the last four years and want to rave about this place! The owners, Steven and Mindy, are so passionate about their customers and know most everyone that comes by name. All of the nail technicians are very skilled and personable. They offer manicures, pedicures, acrylic nails, dipping powder, shellac, gel polish, waxing and eyelash extensions. The best part is they are open seven days a week! The salon went thru a remodel at the end of 2017 and is very relaxed and inviting.
