| Development of Kill
Creek Streamway Park is part of the District’s ongoing efforts
to create linear parks along major streams in Johnson County. In addition
to conserving drainage systems, assisting in flood control, and reducing
property damage, the Streamway Parks System provides trails and open spaces for such leisure
pursuits as biking, jogging, picnicking, and nature hiking.
Existing Trails in Kill Creek Streamway Park
Kill Creek Streamway Park currently consists of two separate segments of paved, shared-use trail totaling a little less than seven miles. Long-term plans call for connecting the existing segments and extending the trail from the Kansas River all the way to Gardner.
