Holmes Park Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Holmes neighborhood housing varies from pretty Cape Cods on the east, to estate-like Tudors and two-story homes on the west, yet they all share a park-like atmosphere. It’s the kind of neighborhood where folks push baby strollers and visit with neighbors. Almost every street has sidewalks, and the area is well-served by public transit.
The Holmes Park neighborhood is bound by East 63rd Street, Troost, East Gregory Boulevard, and is very conveniently situated for the many medical facilities close to home. These include research and specialty hospitals, major medical facilities, and other health-related services.
Daily necessities can be found along perimeter roads, including local and national stores. Also nearby are a farmers market, family YMCA, and a public library.
Three miles to the north is the heart of Kansas City’s arts and education district. The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, and Kansas City Art Institute, UMKC, and Rockhurst University are less than 10 minutes away. Great parks in the same area include Frank A. Theis Park at The Nelson, and Jacob L. Loose Park at The Plaza.
Several notable country clubs are a short drive from Holmes Park, including Kansas City Country Club and Mission Hills Country Club. Five more country clubs are situated just southeast.
Kansas City has a great symphony, ballet, and an active theater scene. Entertainment and history combine in such districts as Westport, 18th and Vine, and the new Power and Light District. There is great shopping at Country Club Plaza, and the regional malls to the west, such as Oak Park and Great Mall of the Great Plains. These sites all have nationally known retailers.
Top historic sites of interest to residents and visitors include the World War I Museum, Union Station, and Westport, plus many National Registry sites around the metro area.
