Shawnee is more than houses & streets. It’s a lifestyle.
Developed on the site of the old Shawnee Indian Mission, the city of Shawnee is currently one of the fastest growing cities in Kansas. Excellent city planning has provided a foundation for this growth. Once a farming community, this city of nearly 65,000 residents sits on 42 square miles of rolling hills in the southwest part of the Kansas City metro area.
Restaurants and bars in Shawnee range from top national franchises to unique mom-and-pop cafés. Independently owned and operated pizza kitchens and popular local chains thrive here, growing the local economy. Shopping options abound as well, including top discount retailers as well as specialty boutiques. Shawnee Mission Medical Center, one of the top medical facilities in the Kansas City metro area, cares for the health and well-being of local residents.
Shawnee schools rank among the top educational institutions in the nation. Two school districts serve the city—the Shawnee Mission School District and the De Soto School District. College students and adults pursuing continuing education will find affordable, quality options at Johnson County Community College and several other institutions of higher learning located within a 30-mile radius of Shawnee.
Parks and Recreation
Greenspace is plentiful throughout Shawnee, and annual activities hosted by the city’s park and recreation commission are popular throughout the greater Kansas City area. Shawnee Mission Park is the home of Theatre in the Park, a summer outdoor-performance program that has been thrilling audiences since 1970. The 1,250-acre park also contains several hiking and riding trails as well as a dog park and a marina. The city has been recognized recently as a top bike-friendly city, and many health and fitness options are available to residents.
