Lewis-Young Park

Originally received through private donation, Lewis-Young Park is a 200+ acre expansive parkland with soccer, baseball, softball and flag football fields with wooded trails, shelters, BBQ grills, a fishing lake, playground, restrooms and open field areas that can accommodate the smallest or largest of events. Field reservations may be obtained by calling the Louisburg Recreation Comission at (913) 837-1910. Other park facilities may be reserved through the City's Parks Reservation page. Hot air ballooners are welcome to launch in the native grass reserve area located south of the main entrance.

The park is also home to the spectacular Powell Observatory that is operated with national acclaim by the Astronomical Society of Kansas City. The main entrance of the park is located on Jingo Road, one mile north of 271st Street.

The park has primitive trails although some are more easily defined than others.

A map of the trails can be viewed (PDF).
