Join us as we celebrate National Public Lands Day and raise funds for the future Oak Ridge
Lodge & Parklands in Shawnee Mission Park. Plans for the former Mack family residence and
surrounding acreage call for transforming the Ogg Road site into a one-of-a-kind community gathering point in
the style of the great Adirondack retreats and a respite for hikers, cyclists, birders and all who love nature.The
park addition will include multiple trailheads, magnificent views, and 100 acres of wildflower meadows and
native prairie surrounded by 254 acres of hardwood forest.
Award-winning storytelling, nature art activities, hayrides, lawn games, Ernie Miller Nature Center critters, an obstacle course, and an Amazing Family Adventure to physically and mentally challenge all ages.
