Connecting with the Community
The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City connects with the community in a unique partnership with the Kansas City Parks and Recreation Department to help continue the over 50-year tradition of the Flower, Lawn & Garden Show. The Kansas City Parks & Recreation Department maintains 10,000 acres of parks and over 129 miles of roadways and boulevards. Known as one of the nation’s leaders in ornamental structures, elaborate parks, dazzling fountains and flower-lined boulevards, this show gives its patrons a peek at the depth and breadth of the Parks department. A wide variety of music, ethnic programs, dancing, floral displays and seminars help to make this event fun for the whole family. In addition, the Board of Parks Commissioners annually judge the show’s Landscaping booths.
