Take advantage of this annual permit-free weekend for fishing, boating (Shawnee Mission, Heritage, Kill Creek and Lexington Lake parks only), and archery (Shawnee Mission Park only). This coincides with the State of Kansas’ “Free Fishing and Park Entrance Days” at state parks whereby state fishing permits are also waived. Fishing, boating, and archery permits will be waived in the designated JCPRD parks on these days only. JCPRD trout permits are still required if fishing for trout at Shawnee Mission and Kill Creek Park lakes.
Regular park hours for these days are 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. at Kill Creek, Heritage,* Meadowbrook, Lexington Lake, and Shawnee Mission parks, 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. at Antioch Park, and dawn to dusk at Thomas S. Stoll Memorial Park and the Streamway parks.
