The word “oasis” usually evokes visions of a remote, refreshing haven surrounded by vast stretches of desolate emptiness.
But in Lenexa, a new residential development invites the coinage of an alluring oxymoron — the convenient oasis.
That defines Cottonwood Canyon, a growing maintenance-provided community of homes that offers all the pleasures of an oasis with all of the infrastructure and amenities of the booming Interstate 435 corridor. Natural foliage blended with imaginative landscaping rolls over terrain complemented by the meticulously maintained greens and fairways of Canyon Farms Golf Club. This picturesque jewel offers seclusion without isolation. Homes nestled discreetly among the rolling greenspace are nevertheless just minutes from just about anywhere in the metro.
While Cottonwood Canyon continues to expand with its own parade of new home buyers, so does the surrounding community. The new Lenexa Civic Center, located within the broader Lenexa City Center, is due to open next year and will serve as a mixed-use hub that includes:

Its connection to Cottonwood Canyon will give residents easy walking access to a rich array of amenities, entertainment and services.
The adjacent Canyon Farms Golf Club is planning an oasis of its own — a new clubhouse expected to be one of the finest in the Kansas City area.
In order to enjoy these and many more community assets, residents don’t have to spend time with many of the tedious chores that come with home ownership. Cottonwood Canyon is maintenance-free, so residents can devote time that would be spent on snow removal, trash disposal and lawn care to more pleasant and rewarding experiences just a leisurely walk from their front doors.
All of this does not stem from happenstance or good luck. Cottonwood Canyon is the result of thoughtful master planning guiding everything from the general location to how each home site is platted so it can make the most of the scenery and topography.
The Parade of Homes is the perfect time to experience Cottonwood Canyon and to view the 23 new homesites (including some prime golf and lakeside locations) perfect for custom-built homes in a convenient oasis for carefree suburban living at its finest.
