Lake Shawnee is final destination for 50 Plus Spring Strolling program
POSTED: 03/31/2014
The third and final walk in the Spring Strolling series being presented by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District will take participants to Shawnee County in late April.

Lake Shawnee, located just east of Topeka, is the destination of this program on Wednesday, April 23. This outing will depart at 9 a.m. from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and is expected to require an easy level of exertion. These outings are meant as an opportunity for participants to make new friends while exploring nature.

The cost for this six-hour outing, including van transportation to the walk site, is $18 per person for Johnson County residents or $20 for nonresidents. Participants should bring a sack lunch for a picnic after the walk, and a few dollars in case we decide to stop for ice cream.

To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “Wednesday walks.”

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
