|Shawnee Mission Park Fishing Dock Removed in Preparation for New Dock Installation|
The fishing dock near the marina at Shawnee Mission Park Lake was recently removed to make way for the installation of a new dock.
A contractor removed the dock on the morning of Nov. 20 in preparation for installation of a new dock later the same week or early the following week. Park Manager Grant Evans said he expected the new dock would be installed on Friday, Nov. 22 or Monday Nov. 25.
The new dock will be the same size and shape as the previous dock, but will have concrete decking rather than wood decking, Evans said. The previous dock had been in place for more than 15 years.
The District received half of the $40,000 cost of the new dock through a grant from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Park's County Lake Assistance Program.
Shawnee Mission Park is owned and operated by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District and is located at 7900 Renner Road, in Shawnee and Lenexa. For more information, contact Park Manager Grant Evans at (913) 888-4713.
