Legacy Plan

Johnson County Park & Recreation District completed a system-wide strategic planning process in 2015 with the Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners' approval of the district's new Legacy Plan. The plan provides the district's board and staff with a comprehensive framework for managing Johnson County's open space and recreational resources through the year 2030. 

Legacy Framework

The Legacy Plan contains seven legacy elements.  Within each element, a series of action items identify goals for the 15-year window of the plan and associated recommendations guide the implementation of the action items.  The recommendations are based on needs and opportunities identified during the planning process. 

Seven Legacy Elements

  • Regional Parks
  • Trails and Connectivity
  • Recreation and Cultural Resources
  • Connecting with Nature
  • Stewardship
  • Identity
  • Teamwork
