|Weekend Walk for 50 Plus takes participants to Parkville on Aug. 8|
The Parkville Nature Sanctuary has some beautiful trails and you can explore some of them during a Weekend Walk being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
The program is called the Parkville Nature Sanctuary Walk and will take place on Saturday, Aug. 8. Participants will enjoy a easy intensity walk. There's also a visitor's center and a great overlook with a view of 115 acres of primitive Missouri forests. After the walk, the group will enjoy lunch at Nick & Jakes in Parkville, where participants will be responsible for their own lunch costs.

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.
