We don’t think there’s a better place to live in Kansas City than Pendleton Heights! Move here and you get a cool old house, awesome neighbors, an instant social life and 307 acres of park space. All PH asks in return is a little love! Everyone is encouraged to get to know their immediate neighbors, to go outside (we love our front porches!) and to take care of our spaces both personal and public. PHNA organizes bi-weekly street clean-ups to help keep our neighborhood looking sharp. Little things you can do around your homes that make a big difference include leaving your porch lights on overnight, planting a few flowers and cleaning up after your dog. Each person doing their part makes it easy on everyone to keep our neighborhood looking great!
Raising a family in Pendleton Heights offers the opportunity to grow in an urban environment. It combines the beauty of one of Kansas City’s most unique neighborhoods with all the city has to offer. From biking and hiking along Cliff Drive, taking in children’s events at the Kansas City Museum, participating in neighborhood social events and more, kids in Pendleton Heights develop a relationship with their city that few other neighborhoods can offer.
Our truly multicultural neighborhood also exposes kids to food, music, and languages that help them develop a more global perspective. We have an active parents group that meets monthly for parent & kid social time, we host a yearly Easter Egg Hunt in Kessler Park, and evening strolls around the neighborhood always afford our children the chance to bump into old friends and meet new ones. We love raising our kids here. We know you will, too.
