Park Amenities
This project has been a collaborative effort between the City of Shawnee Parks & Recreation Department, the planning design team of Shafer, Kline & Warren, Inc., Dick Horton Consulting, and the citizen survey facilitator, ETC/Leisure Vision, Inc. In the true spirit of the community of Shawnee, this partnership has created a document that the city can utilize to guide its efforts in enhancing and improving its park system in the future with confidence that it is doing what the community wants and needs. The project consisted of the following major tasks:
Phase One- Park Design (1)
This document presents the final adjusted plans for the six parks: Kid’s Space Park, Briscoe Boy Scout/Rotary Park, Celebration of Life Park, Woodland Park, Optimist Park, and Dean Weigant Park. The development of these Parks will greatly improve the parks system, by providing new and improved features to increase safety and offer increased recreational opportunities to the citizens of Shawnee.

• Step one - citizen input including a public meeting and the completion of a statistically valid citizen survey
• Step two - inventory and assessment of existing parks
• Step three - development of strategies that can be used to upgrade the system as funds become available
