|Sunset Walk for 50 plus takes participants to Black Hoof Park on Oct. 10|
Head with us to Lenexa to walk at Black Hoof Park as the sun sets during a program being offered in early October by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This program is called the Sunset Walk and will take place on Friday, Oct. 10. Participants will take a mile-long walk up to a great overlook along the park's hard-surface trail. Black Hoof Park has a total of 210 acres, including 35-acre Lake Lenexa and serves functions of flood control while preserving forest, prairie, streamways and wetlands. Pedestrian bridges and boardwalks allow visitors a closer look at wildlife along the waterways. After the walk, participants will dine at the Blue Moose Grill.
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 keyword "walks."
The Sunset Walk will take place on Oct. 10. This outing will depart at 5:30 p.m. from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, and is expected to require an easy level of exertion. The cost for this five-hour outing, including transportation to the walk site, is $24 per person for Johnson County residents or $28 for nonresidents. Dinner costs will be on your own.
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 www.jcprd.com.
