Trail maps are provided on the brochures. There should be some at the main information kiosks at each park. They are also downloadable from the Harveycounty.com website under the Parks Department. We are sorry to hear some of you have had issues with others not following the leash law. We appreciate your cooperation keeping your pets safe and secure. We will continue to do our best to educate those that aren't following the rules and regulations.

Enjoy walking the trails at West Park. Protected from the wind on windy days.

We go just about every day!

Please remind everyone to keep their dogs leashed. My leashed dog was run up on by 2 dogs running loose with joggers

Is there anywhere to get trail maps?

Harvey County

County commissioners gathered this afternoon to canvass and certify the general election. There were 95 provisional ballots canvassed. Of those, 81 were counted.

If you're wondering what is a provisional ballot, a couple examples could be voters that had changed their name since registering (those eight ballots were counted) or voters that were not registered in the county (those 11 ballots were not counted).

You can find the final results of the election here: results.enr.clarityelections.com/KS/Harvey/98749/web/#/summary

A great way to give back during the holidays!

Harvey County Sheriff's Office
First Responders Holiday Helpers is back! This is one of our favorite ways to help do our part to give back to our communities, but we also can't do it without the support we get from you each year.

Holiday Helpers is where we ask for financial donations that we in turn use to provide food items for those in need during the holiday season. In December, our staff will work with Dillons to box up and deliver staple foods such as cereal, canned veggies and much more to hundreds of families right here in Harvey County.

If you can contribute this holiday season, please bring cash or check to the Sheriff's Office. Checks can be made to First Responders Holiday Helpers. Your generosity makes this program go. We appreciate it so much.
