There is a unique tract of public land that will provide special outdoor opportunities in Shawnee County thanks to the children of Leslie and Lydia Fitzgerald. James E. and Carolyn Fitzgerald, Elizabeth Ann Fitzgerald Petersen and Eleanor Sue Fitzgerald Vance donated their 93-acre family farm to the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks in memory of their parents.
After KDWP improves access, the “Leslie T. and Lydia A. Fitzgerald Wildlife Area” will be available for hiking, youth fishing and hunting events, and other special hunts. The new public land is located 13 miles west of Topeka north of Interstate 70.
