Foxtown East is a great area for families, with a variety of different attractions within walking distance for residents, the closest of which is off Kensington Avenue. This is where several baseball fields can be found which are used by youth leagues. The area is also home to the Kansas City Community Gardens.

Another great destination less than a quarter of a mile from Foxtown is the Kansas City Zoo. This somewhat modest zoo provides excellent opportunities for children to get up close to many of their favorite animals. The zoo also has a number of events that are meant to make the zoo experience unique with every visit. The zoo is also a popular destination for many schools that visit during field trips. Education programs provide wonderful learning opportunities for visitors that are still fun and entertaining. The zoo also has an area called The Lagoon located on the east side. It is basically a lake with several islands all connected by bridges, providing great views of wildlife in a unique environment.
North of the neighborhood is the Starlight Theatre off of Starlight Road. This popular outdoor theater provides great musical opportunities for residents of the area. Many of the musical acts are family oriented, allowing everyone in the family to come out for a night of fun. The Starlight is a great place to visit after a day at the zoo.
