|50 plus walkers will picnic at Shawnee Mission Park, hike along streamway for June 4 outing|
A picnic in Shawnee Mission Park and a hike in the nearby Mill Creek Streamway Park are planned for June 4 as an adventure walk being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
The program is called Summer Stroll Through Streamway Park. The hike will involve a walk of about three miles on a smooth surface. Participants are asked to bring a potluck dish and burgers, beverages, and utensils will be provided. Participants will enjoy reminiscing about past hikes and sharing ideas for future adventure walks.
This walk will depart at 9 a.m. from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam. The cost for this five-hour outing, including van transportation to the walk site, is $15 per person for Johnson County residents or $16 for nonresidents.

Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
