|Bring the grandkids and have a “grand adventure” at the Kansas City Zoo during 50 Plus Day event on Sept. 29|
A new social event in late September offers the opportunity for participants to take their grandchild(ren) to the Kansas City Zoo. This program is being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
Grand Adventure to the Kansas City Zoo is the name of this event. This trip will leave at 9 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 29, from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and return at approximately 5 p.m. Participants will have a chance to visit the penguins, otters, polar bears, and other animals at the zoo. The cost of $21 per person includes bus transportation and zoo admission. Participants can take a picnic lunch and keep it in a cooler on the bus or purchase food on their own at the zoo.
To find this event in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords "social event."
While 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. For updated program listings, visit the District's website at www.jcprd.com.
