Leawood /ˈliːwʊd/ is a city in Johnson County, Kansas, United States, and is part of the Kansas City metropolitan area. As of the 2020 census, the population of the city was 33,902.

Leawood was named for Oscar G. Lee, the original land owner of the town site.

Modern Leawood was established in the 1920s, after Oscar G. Lee, a retired police chief from Oklahoma, moved to Johnson County. He supervised the construction of Lee Boulevard for public use.

In 1948, a housing development by the Kroh brothers led to the incorporation as a city. On November 30, 1948, Leawood became a city of the third class with a population of less than 2,000. By 1959, it had become a city of the second class. As of 2014, it is a city of the first class with approximately 32,800 residents.

As of 2015, it was one of the Kansas City metropolitan area’s wealthiest suburbs, alongside Mission Hills, Kansas, the Country Club Plaza neighborhood, and Olathe, Kansas. Particularly the neighborhoods of Hallbrook, Mission Hill Estates, and Tuscany Reserve were all rated in the top 1%, according to a widely cited research professor.

Leawood is home to the main campus of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection, which is the largest church in the Kansas City Metropolitan Area and the largest Methodist church in the country with 22,000 members and an average weekly attendance of 13,600. In 2017, one of the world’s largest stained glass works, costing $3.4 million, was established as part of the church’s building, depicting stories of Jesus and Martin Luther King Jr.

Leawood is also home to three Catholic parishes: Church of the Nativity, Curé of Ars and St. Michael the Archangel.

Town Center Plaza is home to a number of upscale stores with few or no other locations in the Kansas City area.

Libraries
The Johnson County Library serves the residents of Leawood.

In June 2014, Leawood city officials shut down a Little Free Library due to city ordinance prohibiting free-standing structures in the front yards of residential homes. The family of the 9-year-old boy who built the structure created a Facebook page to support amendment of Leawood’s city code. Another resident of the city who erected a Little Free Library was threatened with a $25 fine. There are discussions among the city’s residents in working with the city to amend its code regarding free-standing structures in residents’ front yards.
