Next Wednesday Walk for 50 Plus takes participants to Cedar Crest on Nov. 20
POSTED: 10/25/2017
Beautiful trails near the Kansas Governor's Mansion are the next destination in the fall series of monthly Wednesday Walks being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

The program is called Fall Strolling and the next outing on Nov. 20 will take participants to Topeka's Cedar Crest Trails and the Kansas Governor’s Mansion. Join us on the natural trails that weave through the woods across adventurous terrain. We'll make a special post walk stop at the Kansas Governor’s Mansion for a brief glance inside this historic home. This walk is expected to require a moderate level of exertion.

This outing will take place on a Monday 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, and a few dollars in case we decide to stop for ice cream. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359 or register online at

To find this program in the My JCPRD 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 keywords “Wednesday walks.”

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 50 Plus Department at (913) 826-3030 for space availability.

The My JCPRD Activities catalog is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
