Turner, Kansas City, KS

Turner is a neighborhood in Kansas City, KS, and is located between 23rd St and 31st St, from State Line Rd to N. Oxford Ave.

Most residents live in single-family homes on large lots. The area is also home to many parks, including Turner Park and Edna Turnblad Park which have playgrounds, tennis courts, baseball fields, and basketball courts. In addition, North Lawn Tennis Club has 7 clay courts available to the public for a nominal fee.

Turner gets its name from real estate developer Walter T. Turner, who in 1912 platted the neighborhood after he had acquired it from W. H. Gardner and Charles Ewing.

The area is also known for its short blocks, which are less than 50 yards in length.


Turner was developed by Walter T. Turner, who would eventually build four houses on the corner of 31st St and Chelsea Ave for himself and his family. The area was then divided into lots that were larger than most in other subdivisions at the time because Turner wanted to provide ample space for gardens.

Turner donated a strip of land for a road to be built through the neighborhood after it had been developed, which defined Turner as its own entity. Before Turner was developed, the land housed a dairy farm operated by Charles Ewing, who was related to one of Kansas City’s first mayors. Most of the streets in the area are named after trees and flowers that Ewing grew on the farm.

Historically, Turner has been a predominantly white neighborhood, although the area underwent a period of decline beginning in the 1950s. In an effort to revive Turner and improve its image, residents planted Japanese maples along 31st St.

In 1969, the neighborhood was rezoned from residential to commercial due to plans for I-35 to pass through Kansas City, KS.
