Neighborhood Description

Wooded park land surrounding Mize Lake with paved walking trail and peaceful neighborhood...are words that describe two distinct neighborhoods in one community, Canyon Creek at the Lake and Canyon Creek at the Park. This dual neighborhood community is surrounded by 70 acres of beautiful wooded park land that brings the serenity of nature to the residents' doorsteps. Paved trails around the tranquil lake are enjoyed regularly by walkers, cyclists, fishermen, and nature lovers. Numerous lots in Canyon Creek offer walk-out options that back up to the park land. In addition, the homes are situated on curving streets and private cul-de-sacs that were carefully designed to respect the contours of the land and oriented to provide views of open space.

Canyon Creek's three acre complex heralds a high standard for family-oriented recreation. A free form pool features a large swimming area and a unique "reef ledge" with 6-inch water depth. Complete with a sparkling fountain, this oversized shallow area welcomes children and parents alike. A cabana building features two covered porches with tables for snack time or a shady reprieve from the sun. Other recreational features of the complex includes a park-grade playground area, basketball court, and a large, open playing field ideal for recreational soccer, softball, Frisbee, and football.

Students K-12 attend the award-winning Olathe School District and have their home schools as Cedar Creek Elementary, Mission Trail Middle School, and Olathe Northwest High School. St. James Academy Catholic High School, widely renowned for academic excellence and a superior learning environment, is within walking distance of Canyon Creek.
