    Willow Bend at the Village is a residential HOA community in the southern part of Overland Park. Here you can enjoy a quiet area with a small-town feel, while being minutes from big city life. You will have easy access to local highways and amenities. As of March 2, 2022, there has only been one home sold in the past six months within the $300,000 range. I'd keep an eye out on this area for upcoming homes.

    Overland Park is a major city in Kansas. It is close to the state line, giving easy access to highways and Missouri. I'm sure you will find endless things to fill your time in this busy city! One of my favorite things to do is visit Top Golf. It's a great place to hang out for a few hours, eat and drink! You can rent bays with your friends for an hourly rate, making it easy to plan your day! Each bay has a sitting area and a green with a tee for you to hit off of. The computer allows you to pick between different games. For example, you can see who can hit their ball the farthest, or you can pick the points version where you have to hit your ball towards the colored circles out in the course and each color is worth a different amount of points. This is just one of the many options that Overland Park offers!

    Meadowbrook Park is located at 91st and Nall. It's a really cool park that used to be a golf course that has been turned into a sprawling park with homes, apartments, restaurants, and a hotel where the golf course used to be. As you walk around the park you might catch a couple of old relics like golf ball washers that are still in place in a few spots. I totally suggest stopping by Verbena, a fantastic restaurant that has such cool decor inside it as well as great outdoor seating with views of the park. Great place to take the family for a nice stroll, or there are some great smaller hills that you can skate on.
