Shawnee Mission Park features a 120-acre lake with swimming beach and marina, 11 shelters, numerous picnic areas, nature trails, play areas, an archery range, a 44-acre dog off-leash area, an 18-hole disc golf course, mountain biking and hiking trails, equestrian trails, and is home to the Theatre in the Park.

The park land was purchased through the district's initial bond issue in 1956 and officially dedicated on May 30, 1964. It is the second largest park in the county and the most visited park in the entire state of Kansas.
