About the walk
Walkers will enjoy a very flat walk along the scenic Turkey Creek Walking trail in Merriam, Kansas. The route leaves the Irene B. French Community Center and heads towards a beautiful waterfall, as you progress along the trail you forget that you are with a ½ mile of I-35. On the weekends from May to October, there is a great farmer’s market with live entertainment near the end of the route, just the right distances to carry some fresh fruits and vegetables, home for dinner.
