Winnwood Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Winnwood is a neighborhood in Kansas City, Mo. The area is to the east and south of Interstate 35 and west of Brighton Avenue. Its location along the interstate provides excellent access throughout the Kansas City region and beyond. Numerous attractions can be reached quickly, and it is a great area for those looking to commute rather than live directly in the big city.
Directly in Winnwood is Winnwood Park. This neighborhood park provides a lot of activity in a moderate space. The park itself has a variety of different offerings, mostly geared at keeping area youth active. Winnwood Park has tennis courts, a large playground, a baseball field, and a multiple-use field for soccer and football, as well as a multiple-use paved area for different pavement games. A large open space is used for flying kites, throwing Frisbees, relaxing with a good book, having picnics, and more. A trail that goes through the park also makes a great spot for those looking to run or walk while their children play on the playground, which is directly next to the small, oddly shaped trail.
Another fun destination for families is the Winnwood Skate Center off of Northeast Winnwood Road. This skate center is the largest in Kansas City and provides an excellent facility for all ability levels. It has a main floor and one that is meant for new or younger skaters looking to avoid getting in the way of the more experienced skaters. Winnwood Skate Center is a popular place for lock-ins, events, and parties.
Directly south of the skate center is Festival Foods, which is the largest grocery shopping destination in the immediate area. The neighborhood has an International House of Pancakes, which is a popular restaurant with residents.
