|Shawnee Mission Park Off-Leash Area to be closed for parts of Oct. 28 and Nov. 2|
The closure of the area will facilitate the extension of the trail about 150 linear feet from the end of the current paved trail to the area were the information kiosk and water fountain are located. This is meant to prevent erosion and to provide a better environment for users.
Current plans call for closing the off-leash area from 6 a.m. to 4 p..m. on Oct. 28 for grading and placement of a rock base and from 6 a.m. to noon on Nov. 2 for asphalt paving. The area will be open and usable Friday through Monday. Project dates and times are dependent upon good weather and could change if the weather does not cooperate.
Shawnee Mission Park is owned and operated by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District and is located at 7900 Renner Road, Shawnee and Lenexa. Regular park hours are 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily through Oct. 31 and 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.
