|Mystery walk to round out 50 Plus Summer Strolling program on Aug. 10|
A location determined by participants themselves will be the final destination for the Summer Strolling program being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
The program is called Where Will We Go and will conclude a series of three walks which began in June. As the name indicates, the walkers themselves will choose a location within 60 miles of Antioch Park. Patron votes were sought during the previous walks and the location will be announced the week prior to the walk.
This outing will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 10, and will depart at 9 a.m. from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam. The cost for this six-hour outing, including van transportation to the walk site, is $19 per person for Johnson County residents or $21 for nonresidents. Participants should bring a sack lunch for a picnic after the walk, as well as a few dollars in case the group decides to stop for ice cream. Participants are asked to register at least one week prior to the walk.
