The Gezer Park Project (pronounced "Geh-zer")


ShelterIn 1948, U.S. President Harry S. Truman officially recognized the State of Israel. That same year, Leawood was incorporated. Six decades later, Leawood and its sister city, the Gezer Region of Israel, celebrated their historic bond with the establishment of Gezer Park. Its many features pay tribute to our beloved sister city and will educate and connect American and Israeli communities for generations to come.

Gezer Park is located at 133rd and Mission Road. It is open for public use and is available for special events. Contact Leawood Parks and Recreation for more information.
