Coffee with the Mayor

Rieke Lake Park Development

Want to have a cup of coffee and discuss De Soto with the Mayor?  Contact Mayor Tim Maniez at 913-636-6309 or City Administrator Cynthia Wagner at 913-586-5252 for more information.

465 acre Rieke Lake property located west of De Soto and north of K10 includes a 30 acre lake previously used for fishing as well as a mix of woodlands, forest and open areas.  A master plan for future development of the park includes potential amenities such as picnic shelters, restrooms, a natural amphitheater, wetlands with a boardwalk, tent camping sites, a fishing pier, a boat launch, a marina for pedal boats and canoes, a paved multi use trail, a hiking trail, playground, disc golf course, sand volleyball courts and sports practice fields.


We encourage all citizens to reach out to the JOCO Parks and Recreation with a letter in support for the development of Rieke Lake Park.  A sample letter may be found on the city’s website here.
