Hidden Gems: Lake Olathe Park

Now that we’re getting a little taste of the summer weather to come, Lake Olathe Park is the perfect place to spend an afternoon! Located in south Olake just off of K-7 and Santa Fe, you will find every outdoor summer activity your heart desires right here.


The 170-acre lake has a swimming beach for splashing in the water or tanning on the beach, a beautiful marina where you can rent kayaks, paddleboards, and the like. If you’re feeling competitive, bring some friends and challenge each other to the floating obstacle course!


Not a fan of the water? No worries! Play a round of disc golf, monkey around on the playground, take a walking tour of surrounding nature or enjoy a picturesque picnic in the outdoor amphitheater. The activities and space here are great for people of all ages, and you can enjoy everything from a day date with your love to a fun outing with the whole family.
