Arrowhead Trails boundaries are Metcalf to Lowell, Shawnee Mission Parkway to 71st Street.

Located just south of the Shawnee Mission Parkway commercial area, the group coordinates with city staff and their assigned Community Policing Officer to minimize incompatibilities between the commercial area and adjacent residential properties. To increase awareness of the neighborhood, the group is considering installing neighborhood identification markers.
