50 Plus plans first of three Zoo and Barbecue Adventure Walks on April 23
POSTED: 03/29/2012
Zoo and BBQ Adventure Walks is the name of the program, through which participants can take trips to zoos and barbecue establishments throughout the Kansas City area. The first outing will take place on April 23 and will take participants to the Deanna Rose Farmstead and Zarda Barbecue. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first by age-based categories and then by topic-based subcategories. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “adventure walks.”

This adventure will depart from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, at 9 a.m.. The cost for one six-hour outing, including lunch, transportation, zoo admission, and a hike, is $38 per person for Johnson County residents or $41 for nonresidents. Other adventure walks in this series include a May 21 outing to the Kansas City Zoo and Jack Stack Barbecue and a June 27 adventure to the Topeka Zoo and Grover Barbecue. Pay for each walk separately at the fees listed above, or sign up for all three and receive a $15 discount.

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. 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.

The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, visit the District's website at
