Update: On Nov. 20, 2019, the Johnson County Park and Recreation District (JCPRD) Board authorized entering into an agreement with Pyramid Contractors Inc., to serve as the general contractor for the project. The planned 957 acres west of Kansas Highway 7 and south of 119th Street contains many natural assets including streams, dramatic topography and diverse plant life. Initial development includes trails, pedestrian bridges, trailhead parking, picnic shelter, playground, and restroom facility. The contractor has completed approximately 35% of the construction.
In December of 2018, JCPRD purchased the 75-acre Stoneridge property located in the middle of and surrounded by Cedar Niles Park. The addition brings Cedar Niles Park to 1,032 acres. The Stoneridge property features multiple structures including a large single family house, enclosed barn, open air arena and horse stable. Master planning of the Stoneridge property is currently underway with completion of that study scheduled for fall of 2020. The Stoneridge master plan does not impact the first phase of park development currently under construction.
