    A Note from Dave [Director]Work continues on the new off leash dog park in North Kansas City. Grading and tree planting have been completed on the area which is located at 32nd and Swift in North Kansas City. The parks department will be adding two shelters, walking path and some dog play features along with an asphalt parking lot in the spring. Work should be completed in the spring or early summer. The park will feature a separate play area for small dogs which will be fenced from the large dog area for dog owners that prefer that option for their pet. All dog owners will be expected to clean up after their own animal using the pet stations provided to assure a great experience for all users.

    BRICKS 4 KIDZ FORCES OF NATURE6+ YRS | Ellen BeattyFasten your seat belts; were in for some wild weather! This unit is all about the amazing and powerful forces of nature, as students explore the when, where, how and why of all kinds of natural phenomenon. There is a lot of geography in this unit -- well examine a map of the Pacific Ring of Fire where most tsunamis occur, view a diagram of the tectonic plates and learn how their movement creates earthquakes, define the area known as Tornado Alley in North America, and find out what hurricanes are called in different parts of the world. These lessons are designed to improve your childs understanding of the forces of nature, while taking care not to alarm. Each model represents the motion of that particular weather or event, with a seat for a mini-figure to take in the action! Take cover because were about to take a trip through some wild weather! Kids will love to build moving models of a tornado, a tsunami, an earthquake and a cyclone. Learn how they move, why they happen and what you can do to stay safe!Wednesdays, January 22 - February 266:30pm - 7:30pm[Parks and Recreation Activity Room]Registration Deadline: January 17 Fee: $55
