|Public Hayride Offered at Shawnee Mission Park on Nov. 7|
In addition to fall hayrides for organized groups, the Johnson County Park and Recreation District offers this annual opportunity 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.
The public hayride will take place at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7 at Shawnee Mission Park. The cost is $5 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. Participants will meet at "Site A" behind The Theatre in the Park, 7710 Renner Road, Shawnee.
For anyone interested in group hayrides, spaces are still available through Nov. 21 at both Shawnee Mission Park and at Heritage Park, 16050 Pflumm Road, Olathe. Organized group hayrides also cost $4.50 per person but require a minimum of $65 and a $30 deposit due at the time the reservation is made.
