Trips in the upcoming season include, including Extended Travel with upcoming trips to Italy; Alpine vistas in Italy, Switzerland, Austria, and Germany; Western Canada; Painted Canyons of the West; Britain; Scotland; fall Colors of New England; the French Riviera; Australia and New Zealand; Christmas (2022) on the Danube, and more; as well as Day Trips to attend a New Theatre & Restaurant production; visit the Wentworth Military Academy Museum in Lexington, Mo.; Topeka; Leavenworth; St. Joseph, Mo.; Wichita; Kauffman and Sporting KC stadiums; the famous flea market in Sparks, Kan., and more.

JCPRD continues to offer virtual programs, with an emphasis on 50 Plus offerings, which range from bingo, to Yoga, to games, to topics such as Understanding Alzheimer’s, Healthy Living for the Brain and Body, Dark Sky Light Pollution, and more. A number of other programs are offered this way as well, ranging from gymnastics to computers, to exercise, and more. We’ve learned that virtual programs not only help participants physically isolate during this time of COVID-19, but can also allow people to take classes with friends and relatives who live far away.

With cooler temperature, winter is also a great time to get out and explore JCPRD’s trails and parks.
