Antioch Park has always been a great neighborhood park, but it keeps getting better!

I vaguely remember going to Dodge Town when I was a kid in the late 1960s and running around the western-themed p...lay area. In fact I liked it so much, that there was a certain tree along Shawnee Mission Parkway, that I knew when I saw it we were nearing the park. I was happy to be there on April 21, of this year, when they rededicated the newly-rebuilt play area for new generations of kids to enjoy. It looks great, and somewhat familiar, although it seems a whole lot more safe with better-quality buildings and the pour-in-place safety surface. The park police officer who portrayed the “Marshal of Dodge Town” for this event did a great job of portraying an old west lawman, and all the kids seemed to have a lot of fun. It didn’t hurt that they gave away a free lunch for the event. But there’s a lot more to Antioch Park than Dodge Town. They pack a lot into this 44-acre park, but it’s doesn’t seem overdeveloped. There’s two lakes with a boardwalk on the south one, as well as stepping stones I also remember from when I was a kid. There’s a loop trail all the way around the park, basketball courts on the south side, a rose garden and gazebo that I often see weddings at, four shelters, other separate playgrounds, a Vietnam memorial, and a historical home that now houses some park district offices and their registration department. You wouldn’t think a small park that’s surrounded by residential development would have a lot of wildlife, but I’ve seen migrating birds, lots of turtles in the lakes, and I’ve even caught a glimpse of a red fox (not the comedian) in this park. Overall, this is a great place to escape into a well-maintained green area and get immersed in nature. See More

They are not trying to keep any connection with the equine community and there trail system. Most of the trails were cut by horseman and now they treat horses and their rider as second class citizens.... Drove 45 minutes to ride Saturday at kill creek park after being told by the check trail phone line that they were open. Turned away at the gate. So why could they not said that on the phone line. Park and rec. owe an apology to all horseman that came that day and were not able to ride. So much for my $11,000.00 / year in property tax. See More
