Inclement weather

Inclement weather hotline: 913.477.7170

We reserve the right to cancel programs and special events or close facilities in the event of inclement weather (snow, extremely cold temperatures, excessive heat, rain, lightening) or other emergency situations. The decision to cancel programs and close facilities is made by the Parks & Recreation Director or designated staff.

  • If the Shawnee Mission School District cancels for weather-related reasons before the school day begins, we will cancel recreation programs until noon the same day. We will make the decision whether to cancel afternoon/evening programs by 11 a.m.

  • If the Shawnee Mission School District cancels during the day, we will make decide whether to continue or cancel programs for that day by 3 p.m.

  • On weekends and during the summertime, we will decide whether to cancel programs or facilities at least 30 minutes before a program or event begins.

  • For our pools, if inclement weather prevents us from safely opening the pools at noon, we will attempt to open them at 4 p.m. that day. If inclement weather continues to prevent us from safely opening Ad Astra and Flat Rock Creek pools at 4 p.m., they will remain closed for the day. We will continue to try to open Indian Trails Aquatic Center, if possible.

  • We may cancel or modify senior programs based on cold temperatures, icy roadways or other factors. (If Johnson County Nutrition Services cancels, meals will not be served that day.)

If we cancel programs due to weather, we will try to reschedule them if possible. If we do not reschedule, we will refund any registration fees in accordance with our refund policy.

  • We do not issue refunds for certain special events.

  • If our facilities are open and we make the decision to continue with programs, we will not issue a refund if you choose not to attend because of weather-related circumstances.
