Evergy Plaza features 45,000 sq. ft. of programmable open space with a 50 ft. performance stage, a video board for people to watch games and movies, a 16’ fire pit and a 3,200 sq. ft. splash pad with 50+ fountains complete with audio, visual, and lighting. The splashpad is capable of being converted to an ice rink in winter months.
The plaza features materials inspired from the surrounding landscape. Grays and tans in pavers and stone elements reflect the colors of the flint hills, while steel stage structures and light towers hearken to the railroad that cuts through Topeka.
Evergy Plaza will be the ideal connecting spot in the heart of Downtown Topeka. The 1-acre community gathering space will be home to about 400 events per year. Events at the Plaza will include concerts, artisan markets, finesses classes, and watch parties. Year-round programming will draw residents and visitors into downtown helping to spur further redevelopment.
