|Parent & Child Night Hike offered on Oct. 2 at Ernie Miller Park|
Night Hike allows children ages two to six with a parent or guardian to explore park trails as the sun sets. The program takes place at the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's Ernie Miller Park, which is located at 909 North Kansas 7 Highway, Olathe. Beginning at 7 p.m., participants will listen for nocturnal sounds such as the cricket's chorus and the barred owl's call and then gather around a cheery fire for stories, songs, and a tasty treat. Participants should bring a flashlight. Perform a catalog search for the keywords "night hike" to find this program in the JCPRD's Activities catalog and online listings.
