The Shawnee Mission Park Marina is scheduled to operate on the weekends of May 4 and 5, May 11 and 12, and May 18 and 19, prior to opening daily for the summer season beginning May 25.
The marina’s weekend hours will be from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily, but note the last rentals each day will be at 6 p.m. The marina offers boat rentals, including canoes, pedal boats, kayaks, and paddleboards. The Shawnee Mission Park Marina accepts cash and credit cards, but not checks. Rental rates are listed on the district’s website at https://www.jcprd.com/Facilities/Facility/Details/Shawnee-Mission-Park-Marina-76. Fishing permits are also available at the marina.
Shawnee Mission Park is located at 7900 Renner Road in Shawnee and Lenexa. For more information, call (913) 888-1990 during business hours. You can also reach the marina's inclement weather line at (913) 686-6030 ext. 20.
Note that a temporary repair to address rotten roof beams discovered last year has been made to allow the marina to operate out of its usual location this spring and summer, and a full roof replacement to bring the marina back to its original design is scheduled this fall.
The Johnson County Park and Recreation District’s other marina operation at Kill Creek Park, which operates out of the park's beach, will also open for the summer season beginning May 25.
