|Ogg Road Entrance to Shawnee Mission Park Closed Indefinitely|
The Ogg Road entrance to Shawnee Mission Park off of Midland Drive has been closed indefinitely because of damage caused by heavy rains on Aug. 27, officials with the Johnson County Park and Recreation District announced Monday, Aug. 28.
The road’s low-water crossing over Little Mill Creek was undermined and one section was cracked by rainwater from the storm. Officials said the road would remain closed until the damage can be assessed and remedied.
This northernmost park entrance takes visitors past the Oakridge Stables operation to enter the park adjacent to the Beach Road on 79th Street not far from the park’s boat ramp and marina. Visitors can continue to access Shawnee Mission Park via the 87th Street entrance to the south and the 79th Street entrance to the east. In addition, the portion of Ogg Road leading to Oakridge Stable is still open and can be accessed from within the park.
