Welcome to your neighborhood

Ask those in our neighborhood where they live and you'll get a few different answers.

Waldo, Brookside, Brookdo. But the proper name is Ward Parkway Homes Association. Situated in Kansas City, Mo., between Gregory Boulevard (north), Wornall Road (east), 75th Street (south), and State Line Road (west), the Ward Parkway neighborhood is a collection of homes dating as far back as the late 1800s. You'll find Four Squares, Dutch Colonials, Dible Tudors, Arts and Crafts Bungalows and Shirtwaists — each as unique and charming as the tree-lined streets on which they stand.
