Lake Lenexa can be found in Black Hoof Park off of Monticello Road. Lake Lenexa is probably best known for its dam and spillway. The dam and spillway are an excellent combination of art and function. I would try to explain what each part of the spillway signifies but it is easier to point you to the picture of the spillway information plaque. It points out each element of the spillway and what it signifies.
Not exactly a fountain but it does have a fountain element and also a “waterfall” element. Plus, it’s just so cool looking that it needs to be brought to everyone’s attention. I need to go back out there in the spring or summer when all the plants are green and the flowers are blooming. I’m sure the whole thing looks more impressive with the greenery and flowers.
The slippery path and ice signs are located on the walking paths around the lake and spillway.
