The District’s 20-year Master Action Plan, MAP 2020, specifically recommended updating the master
plans for each park in the county system. A master planning process for Antioch Park began in late
2002 and in April 2003, consultants with Theis Dolittle Associates Inc. completed and successfully
sought approval of a new master plan for the facility calling for $4 million in improvements to be
completed over four phases.
In October 2003, the District began $1.2 million in improvements and renovations representing Phase 1 of improvements. The improvements were to be made over seven months with completion by June 1, 2004. Access to the park will be maintained throughout the project, although it is anticipated the park's main drive will likely be narrowed to one lane during replacement of the stormwater culvert. The public will be notified through this website and through the media when that element of the project is to begin.
Major goals of Phase I include increasing water quality in the park’s two small lakes and developing a one-mile loop trail around the park.

Pyramid Excavation & Construction, Inc. is the general contractor for Phase I improvements, while Tetra Tech Em Inc., is the engineering consultant.
The park’s master plan also calls for an additional $2.8 million in improvements to be completed in three future phases. These phases have not been budgeted or scheduled at this time and are contingent upon the community’s ongoing support for MAP2020 - the District’s master action plan for maintaining existing parks while acquiring and developing sufficient parkland to meet Johnson County’s ever- increasing recreational needs.
