Antioch Park (Sub-Regional Park)
A new master plan with recommendations for long-term management needs to be prepared to enhance and preserve this exceptional community resource. The master plan for Antioch Park should illustrate the optimum way to provide recreation facilities to better serve County residents. It should seek the proper balance between recreation facilities and natural features. Proposed changes to the park should be based on their ability to enhance the overall appearance of the park, promote land stewardship and provide a quality recreational experience for the users.

The completed master plan should address the following issues:
Athletic Training Center (Sub-Regional Park)
In conjunction with The Parks and Recreation Foundation of Johnson County, the District recently took advantage of a unique opportunity to lease and renovate this private racquetball and health club and to make the facilities available to the general public in 2001. The former Athletic Club of Georgetown is in good condition and contains nine racquetball courts, a weight room, a multi-purpose room and other facilities Planned renovations include converting a portion of the racquetball courts to usable space for the District's gymnastics program and other instructional programs.

Oakridge Farm (Sub-Regional Park to be part of adjacent Regional Park)
The following recommendations for additions and improvements are suggested to enhance aesthetics, reduce maintenance and provide better facilities:
Roeland Park Recreation Complex (Sub-Regional Park)
Recommended improvements include:
Shawnee Mission Park (Regional Park)
This is a large regional park with 1,236 acres and is an exceptional resource that possesses a balanced approach to preserving natural areas while providing extensive recreation facilities. The following recommendations for additions and improvements are suggested to enhance aesthetics, reduce maintenance and provide better facilities:
Tomahawk Recreation Complex (Sub-Regional Park and Golf Course to be part of adjacent Regional Park)
Planning for this recreational site located adjacent to Shawnee Mission Park should begin with a comprehensive development program of improvements for this facility and an architect's assessment of the structural quality and condition of the clubhouse. Additional recommended improvements are as follows:
Potential Sub-Regional Park (SRP)
Previous opportunities to expand the amount park acreage in this densely populated area have often been missed due to a lack of funding and/or coordination. As suitable property or properties become available for one or more Sub-Regional parks within this CPA, the District should coordinate acquisition and development. For example, should a property similar to Meadowbrook Country Club become available for purchase, as it has in the past, the District and municipal partners should acquire it and convert it into a Sub-Regional park.
