A new disc golf course is coming soon to Lexington Lake Park!
Work began in mid-October on construction of a new disc golf course at Lexington Lake Park. JCPRD recently hired local course designer Scott Reek, who previously designed and helped construct disc golf courses at Heritage and Big Bull Creek parks. The new course will be located on LLP’s east side in an under-utilized area, and will have nine holes with two baskets at each hole, so players could play the course twice and have a different experience each time. A new parking area for 12 to 15 cars will also be part of this project. Tentative plans call for completing this course no later than Memorial Day 2023.
Updates coming soon to Shawnee Mission Park's disc golf course
Once work at Lexington Lake Park is complete, Reek will switch over to working on planned expansion of the 18 existing disc golf holes in Shawnee Mission Park to four nine-hole courses, including three championship-length courses, and a fourth, shorter course for beginners. It is hoped the SMP course expansion will be complete by late summer.
