"Right through a beautiful old neighborhood and park"

It's not hard to believe that Harry Truman owned property along Karnes Blvd and the surrounding streets. The street is wide, tree-lined and is a beautiful example of how a neighborhood in a city can be designed well.

Karnes also runs through a park which separates the 39th Street shopping and dining experience near the KU Medical Center from a fully residential areas known as Coleman Highlands.

The park at the bottom of Karnes includes a football field, sand volleyball court and a community center.

The road and park along it are well-maintained, but during the winter and heavy rains the big hills here (who would have though there were big hills in the Midwest) are quite a bear. Karnes regularly floods out at the bottom during a heavy rain and it can be quite treacherous in the snow, though it can recover quickly from each. In the middle of the hot and humid Kansas City summers, the park at the bottom of Karnes is at least 10 degrees cooler and a perfect place to exercise in the hot weather.
