Welcome to Strong City

Heart of the Flinthills
Strong City is located in Chase, [CS], County in the heart of the beautiful Flinthills on the Scenic Byway, Highway 177. The city itself is famous for its rodeo each summer. The rodeo is one of the first and largest P.R.C.A. approved rodeos in the nation. It attracts over 20,000 visitors in the first week of June and draws contestants from all over the world. The parade travels from Cottonwood Falls to Strong City, the two communities being one mile apart.  The Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve (aka Spring Hill Ranch and Z-Bar Ranch ) is located just 2 miles from Strong City.  Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. The nearly 11,000-acre preserve is co-managed by the National Park Service and The Nature Conservancy (a nongovernmental, non-profit organization). The preserve represents a nationally significant portion of the once vast tallgrass ecosystem and includes buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Preserve was established explicitly as a unique public/private partnership between the National Park Service and the Nature Conservancy.

Strong City completed construction for the 2020 SRTS Grant

The City of Strong City was awarded the 2020 SRTS grant!  During the summer of 2023, sidewalks were built in the planned area. They were completed before school began. Strong City participated in National Walk to School Day on October 4th on the brand new sidewalks with students, community members, city representivies, Law Enforcement, School staff and parents/guardians. What a fun morning! As the city waits for the next feasable budget years to make application, we will continue to promote Walk and Roll to School Days as well as promoting the educational components of safe passage to and from school. Examples are: Walk/bike to school, Bicycle safety events outside of school, Law Enforcement presenting safety information in school, posts to social media from many entities within the County. If you have not had an opportunity to see or use the new sidewalks and crosswalks, we highly encourage you to do so!
