Hours for the remainder of JCPRD’s 2020 beach and marina operations at Shawnee Mission Park have now been announced. Because it is based on the current plans of local school districts, this schedule is subject to change.
Participation at both facilities, which are running with modified operations this year to encourage physical distancing and a safe environment for visitors and staff in response to COVID-19, requires advance reservations in specified timeframes, which can be made online at JCPRD.com. Shawnee Mission Park is located at 7900 Renner Road, Shawnee and Lenexa.
The Shawnee Mission Park Marina will be open daily through Labor Day with reservable one-hour rental times at 10 am, 12 pm, 2 pm, 4 pm and 6 pm. For the marina’s post-Labor Day schedule through Sept. 20, rental times on Monday through Friday will be 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., and weekend rental times for Saturday and Sundays are 10 am, 11:30 am, 1 pm, 2:30 pm, 4 pm and 5:30 pm.
The marina offers boat rentals including canoes, pedal boats, kayaks, and paddle boards. Rental rates are $20 per hour for Johnson County resident or $22 per hour for nonresidents. Additional information can be found at JCPRD.com/marinas
