| TimberRidge Adventure Center,
one of Johnson County Park and Recreation District's premier facilities
for teamwork and team building, offers a wide range of opportunities
for families, friends and work groups to challenge themselves, learn
to communicate better, solve problems and work together.
Groups ranging from boy scouts to executive boards can experience fun and excitement in a noncompetitive, safe and supportive atmosphere. The main venue for these activities is the Center's professionally certified challenge and ropes course featuring 28 low elements, a 200-foot zip line and a climbing tower with 3 other high elements. With firsthand experience and group discussion, TimberRidge participants explore and create problem-solving methods that are readily adaptable to the challenges of day-to-day life. In addition to the Challenge Course, TimberRidge offers other outdoor activities including hiking, fishing, archery, canoes, and paddleboats.
Great Outdoor Setting
Located approximately five miles south of DeSoto in Olathe, Kansas, TimberRidge Adventure Center encompasses over 200 acres of diverse landscapes divided by a series of ponds. The rugged southern half includes a box canyon and provides opportunities for exploration and discovery among the limestone outcroppings and heavily wooded slopes. The more open northern half, composed of upland prairie and scattered woodlands, is perfect for large group events and activities.
In addition to being available for facilitated programs, TimberRidge is also used by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District as the setting for a growing number of programs, including summer camps, weekend adventure programs, wellness retreats, the mother daughter hike, the annual open house, and other special events.
