The newest issue of the My JCPRD Activities catalog is online at, where registrations are now being taken, and is also available in print. The free publication covers JCPRD programs and events offered between September and December. 

The free 64-page publication features more than 500 programs from Preschool to 50 Plus offered between September and December at locations throughout the county, including at the newly-opened Meadowbrook Park and Clubhouse. Program offerings range from arts and crafts to sports to nature activities and include leagues, classes, seminars, workshops, lunch and learns, trips, and more. The majority of programs start on or after Sept. 1, but this issue also includes a number of additional August offerings which were not May through August issue, as well as a few which take winter break activities into 2020. 

Fall and early winter special events in the new catalog include:  the new Evening in the Park event, the final Overnight Fishing Saturday of  2019, Fall Hayrides, the Flight of the Monarch event, Whimsical Woods, Haunted Kansas, the Trick-or-Cache geocaching, the Mildale Farm Fall Fest, three new temporary exhibits at the Johnson County Museum, Fall Trout Stocking, Veterans Day Celebration, a 50 Plus Travel Show, Breakfast with Santa, Senior Follies, Step Into Wellness, two indoor productions by the Theatre in the Park, a new Customer Appreciation Day at the Mill Creek Activity Center, Breakfast with Santa, Winter Solstice Celebration, Noon Year’s Eve, and many more.

This issue also includes articles about the Shawnee Mission School District's new Aquatic Center opening later this year in Lenexa City Center, the newly-opened Meadowbrook Park, 40 years of JCPRD hayrides, a temporary exhibit about Native American stereotypes coming to the Johnson County Museum, and a new program for caregivers called Trading Places - Caring for Aging Parents.

The September through December catalog continues a marketing approach which began in mid-2017 whereby JCPRD considers its website as its major marketing tool and the primary source of information about programs, facilities, and all things JCPRD. The printed catalog now features concise program information and directs readers to the website, where they’ll find more detailed descriptions for most programs.  

The My JCPRD Activities catalog is mailed to about 32,000 past participants who have taken part in a district programs within the past year. Catalogs are also be available at Johnson County Library branches, community centers, various businesses, and at district locations.
