Shawnee Mission Park winter hours begin next week
Winter hours of 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. go into effect Tuesday for Shawnee Mission Park, 7900 Renner Road.
Park hours are reduced each winter to reduce costs and to allow for the reallocation of a staff time to other activities at a time when fewer people typically visit the parks because of colder weather and earlier nightfall.
Outdoor restrooms and water fountains in JCPRD parks have already been turned off and weatherized to avoid damage from freezing
Notable exceptions are the restrooms in the foyer area of the new addition to the JCPRD Administration Building near the 79th Street entrance in Shawnee Mission Park. Those restrooms are climate-controlled and will remain open during park hours throughout the year.
