Lee’s Summit’s oldest park is located at Blue Parkway and Jefferson Street. It is 19 acres in size and has one picnic shelter with tables, Summit Waves and Harris Park Community Center within walking distance, .35-mile trail and a large playground area. This park was donated to the city by several citizens in 1918, but it has been a park for as long as LS has been a city.

The municipal pool was built in 1971 and renovated into Summit Waves in 2008. Summit Waves has a lap pool, children's play area, two water slides, a 904-foot action river, a concession stand and a LSPR’s new wave pool.

Harris Park Community Center, formerly LS Recreation Center, was built in 1992 and renovated in 2008. HPCC has 6 volleyball courts, 3 basketball courts and 2 meeting rooms. HPCC is also home to Camp Summit in the summer months for 600 children.
