Mill Creek Streamway Park
Mill Creek Streamway Park is a beautiful linear park with approximately 17 miles of pedestrian and bicycle trails. It also has three miles of equestrian trails and open spaces for jogging, picnicking, and hiking. The trail extends from Nelson Island on the Kansas River, south through the cities of Shawnee and Lenexa, and ends in Olathe.

In 2010, JCPRD's Gary L. Haller Trail was designated by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar as a National Recreation Trail (NRT).

Please note: A number of trail improvement projects are under way along the Mill Creek Streamway Park. Users may experience closures along the trail, see below for details. 


  • The Mill Creek Streamway Park access point at Prairie Star Parkway will be closed beginning Monday, Aug. 26, weather permitting, for approximately five weeks. Please access the trail to the north from the 87th Lane Access Point. 
  • Asphalt sealing will begin on the trail at the Knights of Columbus bridge west of the Midland Drive Access Point and will proceed southward to the north end of the loop in Shawnee Mission Park from Tuesday, Sept. 24 through Thursday, Sept. 26. That section of trail will be completely closed to all users during this project. During the closure, trail users may walk or bike north from Midland to the Kansas River. They may walk or bike south from the dam access in Shawnee Mission Park to the southern terminus. Due to length, excessive shade, and cooler temps, this project may take longer than shown. Updates will be posted if further closure is necessary. 
  • The Shawnee Mission Park Shelter 8 access will be closed on Tuesday, Sept. 24 for seal coating. Trail can be accessed from the dam.
