Verona Gardens was first developed by the J.C. Nichols Company in the 1970's, and is a development of 445 single family homes. Located in Leawood, Kansas, and the nationally recognized Blue Valley School District, the homes are within walking distance of Leawood Elementary and Leawood Middle Schools. Also church sponsored schools are close by.
Our streets and sidewalks have hundreds of mature trees that give the neighborhood a lovely canopy appearance and provide shade for the summer months. The neighborhood is close to many shopping, dining and other attraction destinations. Hospitals and churches are nearby. Highway access is only minutes away, making getting around the metro area very convenient.

Easter Egg Hunt - Early April
VG Annual Association Meeting - May 3

Your homes association operates on people power. Things don’t just happen. Someone makes them happen. Here’s how you can help make things happen.
Annual Garage Sale - Our community-wide garage sale simplifies advertising and attracts more customers. A coordinator or two is needed to keep this event going.
Island Watchers - Verona Gardens has 27 public areas to maintain. Residents are needed to watch over them and report any needs to the Board member who monitors the lawn maintenance service. If you live near a public space, please help us keep them looking good.
Children’s Events – Helping hands are always needed to assist in the preparations for and conduct of the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Back-to-School Ice Cream Social for Verona Gardens youngsters.
Annual Meeting – We want to make the Annual Meeting in May more interesting and appealing to residents. A committee is being set up to generate ideas and make arrangements for the event.
