There used to be:

  • Fairyland Park (and Drive-In) at 75th & Prospect
  • A King Louie Bowling Alley (with an arcade & pool hall) on 79th & Troost.
  • A  Loma Vista Bowling Alley (with an arcade & pool hall) on 87th & Blue Ridge Blvd. 
  • A Brywood’s Movie Theater & a Drive-in Theater on 63rd off 435hwy.
  • Even a skating rink just south in Grandview off 71hwy


Our goal is to identify blighted/vacant properties on the west side of district 5 in order to obtain, beautify, & maintain these properties.


Turning these properties into Boon Areas (and Boon Houses) in order to 'revive the west side of district 5' in Kansas City, MO.
