Lee\'s Summit, MO - Healthy Gay Lifestyle in a Green Community

Lee’s Summit was founded way back in 1865 by homesteader William B. Howard. This community is in Missouri, but because it is just across the state line many consider it to be a suburban part of Kansas City. It is situated right on the northern border of Kansas and southern border of Montana across from Kansas City. Lee’s Summit was originally a huge farm and lumberyard that in the 1900s became a bit of a resort and attraction.  Many people who work in Kansas City commute across state lines to live in Lee’s Summit, which is comparatively pastoral and safe.  As of the 2010 U.S. government census, the population of Lee’s Summit was estimated to be 91, 364. The LGBT community is largely under-the-radar here as it is a mostly family community with many shopping malls and community centers.

This is a very sprawling community that is still laid out much like it’s roots as a farm community and you do need a car or a good bike to live here. There is not really any café society here and many people tend to gather at the very large, designer community centers in the area such as the Gamber Center, Hartman Park Sports Complex and Legacy Park Community Center.  Summit Waves is a very popular destination with a long winding man-made river, six lane lap pool and diving boards.
