|Second of two Public Hayrides offered on Nov. 5 in Shawnee Mission Park|
The second of two public hayrides being offered by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District this fall at the Oak Ridge Parklands in Shawnee Mission Park will take place on Nov. 5.
In addition to fall hayrides for organized groups, the JCPRD each year offers opportunities for individuals and family members to enjoy the crisp autumn air from a tractor-drawn hayride without having to worry about reaching minimum numbers or placing a deposit. Advance registration is required.
This hayride will take place at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6, at Oak Ridge Parklands in Shawnee Mission Park, 7460 Ogg Road, Shawnee. The cost is $7 per person and advance registration is required. Like the group program, this hayride will last approximately 60 minutes, and will be followed by a 60-minute campfire with apple cider and marshmallows. The first public hayride of the 2017 season took place in late September. To register for the Nov. 6 hayride, visit the district's website at www.jcprd.com or call (913) 831-3359.

For anyone interested in group hayrides, spaces are still available through Nov. 19 at both Shawnee Mission Park and at Heritage Park, 16050 Pflumm Road, Olathe. Organized group hayrides also cost $7 per person but require a minimum of $80. Hayrides take place seven days a week during the above timeframe at Oak Ridge; and on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday only at Heritage Park, 16050 Pflumm Road, Olathe. Reservations must be made at least two weeks in advance of the date of the hayride. For scheduling and information, call (913) 831-3359.
