If you are moving to Lenexa, there are plenty of fun activities that will get even the most lethargic of kids excited and off the couch. Just because school is out, does not mean that there are no fun activities. Your local Lenexa movers have great ideas to get your kids outside and having fun in their new city.

  1. Black Hoof Park. Home of the famous Lenexa Lake, Black Hoof Park is the perfect summer destination for the entire family. Located on 210 acres, the 35-acre lake is the perfect place to go boating and fishing for the day. You can also take advantage of the five-acre trail-way system that is great for bike riding, hiking, or taking a leisurely walk to find a great picnic spot. Not to mention, there are tons of animals that will likely pay a visit throughout your day of fun; including: deer, coyotes, red foxes, birds, frogs and butterflies. So, if you are moving to Lenexa, you may want to get used to these critters.
  2. Canyon Farms Golf Club. Located at one of Lenexa’s best golf courses, Canyon Farms Golf Club just started offering a summer camp for kids.

Once they are done, head on over to the batting cages so that your kids can work on perfecting their swing. If you don’t want to commit to a weeklong-session of golf camp, then spend the day playing mini golf with your whole family – a great way to take a break from moving.
  3. Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park. Spread out over 53-acres, this beautiful park, located in the heart of Lenexa, was made for summer fun. Expect to be torn between what you want to do first.

Regardless of what you choose to enjoy first, the park has something for every age.
