Olathe is a township located in the Kansas City metropolitan area, which is part of Kansas, United States.
Olathe is reasonably quiet, as there tend to be low levels of noise from traffic - although that is not the case close to one of the 2 airports (Johnson County Executive Airport, New Century Aircenter), US Highway 56, US Highway 50 or the railway line. It is occasionally challenging to reach green spaces from a lot of locations in the township since they are spread out sporadically. Despite that, there are over 50 parks close by for residents to discover.
