Tidy, older homes on small lots in historic Kansas City make the Waldo Homes neighborhood a great place to call home. The neighborhood is bounded by Wornall Road, East 79th Street, Oak Street, and West 85th Street.

Attesting to the long history of the neighborhood, the Trolley Track Trail runs along the west side. The old streetcar line is now part of the “Rails to Trails” program. It is a great 4.5-mile path for biking and hiking, and the trail is also wheelchair accessible. The original trolley shelter is preserved.

Wornall Road is named for an early resident, John Wornall. The John Wornall House Museum, dating to Civil War days, is just north. Soldiers from both sides ransacked the house, built in 1858, and tried to murder Wornall. Today, it is a great little museum with year-round programs.

But these are just the neighborhood attractions. Huge Swope Park lies to the east and Penn Valley Park is just north, and both are accessible by public transit. At Penn Park locals enjoy tennis courts and an off-leash dog park. Visitors flock to the World War I Museum on the park grounds. Also in the Penn Park area are Union Station and Crown Center.

Arts and education flourish in the area and add a feeling of excitement. Within a fifteen-minute drive are the Nelson-Atkins Art Museum, The Kansas City Art Institute, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, the University of Missouri at Kansas City, and Rockhurst University.

Two country clubs are just west: Mission Hills and Kansas City. Another, Indian Hills, is just south. A public golf course can be found at Swope Park.

As an urban neighborhood, Waldo homes is pedestrian friendly and provides great public transit. Also, as one would expect in a densely populated area, plenty of retail and commercial opportunities are nearby.
