50 Plus Plans April 3 Wednesday Walk at Lawrence's Riverfront Park

50 Plus Hike

Walk on the crushed limestone and natural trails that follow the Kansas River through the city of Lawrence during the next  Wednesday Walk being planned this season by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.

Participants in this Riverfront Park walk will travel to Lawrence  to visit this 994-acre park on  Wednesday, April 3. This walk is expected to require an easy level of exertion.  Participants are invited to make friends while exploring the great outdoors! We drive; you relax, listen to the wind and experience new destinations!

To find this program in the My JCPRD Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under nature & outdoors. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search,  look for the keywords “Wednesday walks.” 

This program will depart at 9 a.m. from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch Road, Merriam. The cost for one six-hour outing, including transportation to the walk site, is $20 per person for Johnson County residents or $22 for nonresidents. Be sure to bring a water bottle, a sack lunch for a picnic after the walk, and a few dollars in case we stop for ice cream.  In case of inclement weather, the rescheduling date will be the following week. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359 or register online at Please register for this walk by March 27. 

While JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the 50 Plus Department at (913) 826-3030 for space availability.
