In October 2017, a new 3.5 mile trail along Coffee Creek in Overland Park opened. Many miles of new trails are planned in the coming years. An extension to Kill Creek Trail is under construction this year (2018), and a new trail along Cedar Creek in Olathe will be constructed in 2019-2020.
The width of JCPRD park roads is not sufficient to include bicycle lanes. However, bicycles are allowed on park roads and multi-use trails in county parks.
JCPRD has jurisdiction to construct trails only within its park properties. If a park is adjacent to a major road, a connection is made by JCPRD, if possible. Dog waste collection stations are provided along trails and in all off-leash dog parks.
