Meadowbrook Park Project

A portion of the former 135-acre Meadowbrook Country Club, located in Prairie Village, in being converted into an 80-acre park to address the shortage of park space in northeast Johnson County. The design for the new park will take advantage of the open green space and mature trees that were part of Meadowbrook Parkthe former golf course and will transform the property into a one-of-a-kind park.

Public Helps Name Meadowbrook Activity Building

The public was invited to help JCPRD name the new activity building within Meadowbrook Park. A public vote on the name took place in July 2017. The top three names were presented to the Johnson County Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners.  The Board approved "Meadowbrook Park Clubhouse" as the name for the new multi-use facility. 

Kids Vote for the New Playground

Local kids were given the chance to help select the design for the new destination playground. Both video previews of the designs and voting took place at Prairie Village’s annual VillageFest in July 2017. The playground selected was The Tree Line Adventure (PDF).Rendering of Meadowbrook Park playground
