TimberRidge Adventure Center, one of Johnson County Park & Recreation District's premier facilities for teamwork and team building, offers a wide range of opportunities for families, friends and work groups to challenge themselves, learn to communicate better, solve problems and work together.
Access to TimberRidge Adventure Center is by reservation or registration only.
Groups ranging from Boy Scouts to executive boards can experience fun and excitement in a noncompetitive, safe and supportive atmosphere. The main venue for these activities is the center's professionally certified challenge and ropes course featuring 28 low elements, a 300-foot zip line, and a climbing tower with three other high elements. With firsthand experience and group discussion, TimberRidge participants explore and create problem-solving methods that are readily adaptable to the challenges of day-to-day life. In addition to the Challenge Course, TimberRidge offers other outdoor activities including hiking, fishing, archery, canoes, kayaks, and paddleboats.
TimberRidge Adventure Center also offers two rental venues. The Welcome Center includes a kitchen, restroom facilities, a meeting room that accommodates up to 80 people, and a large outdoor deck which wraps around the building, overlooking Nessie’s Lagoon. The Whispering Pine shelter has a limestone fireplace, attached restrooms, and can accommodate up to 200 people. We also have two gorgeous ponds for pictures and a wonderful view. Both the Welcome Center and the Whispering Pine Shelter may be rented for those either needing more room or wanting to make an event more intimate by renting the full space. Full Site Rentals have access to the area north of the ponds on the property. For an additional fee, temporary alcohol permits for 5.0 beer, wine, or champagne are available with any of the facility rental options listed above.
