Our Vision

Historic Downtown Garden City is the regional destination in southwest Kansas for unique shopping opportunities, dining, healthcare, arts, and entertainment.

Fully occupied and renovated buildings surrounded by beautiful, clean streetscapes make this an exciting, safe gathering place that houses the community's heart and soul.

The restoration of significant properties strengthen the Downtown's position as a focal point in the community.

Our Mission

Garden City Downtown Vision is dedicated to strengthening Downtown's retail and economic base, preserving its historic character, and promoting the core district as the community's cultural and social center.

This will be accomplished by forming partnerships with citizens, businesses, local governments, and civic organizations.
