|Shawnee Mission Park Gets New Fence on Renner Road Frontage|
In all, 614 eight -foot rails are being replaced across the park's 2550 feet of frontage. The new fence is made of treated round rails and is expected to be more solid and require less repairs.
In some places, the new fence was set back by as much as 30 feet from the previous fence in anticipation of a possible realignment of Renner Road within the next three to five years, as shown in preliminary road plans under consideration by the City of Lenexa. If realized, that plan would also place a "roundabout" in front of the park's main entrance for traffic control.
