Amid life’s hustle and bustle, it’s nice to get away sometimes, far from the madding crowd.

This week’s 5 to Try is looking for parks in Johnson County that are good spots for peace and quiet.

We’ve taken park recommendations before but with more activity-driven and socially-minded themes at the forefront, from best dog parks to best playgrounds.

This week’s different: we want your suggestions for quiet corners of Johnson County where one can go just to be still and earn a break from all the noise of modern life.

You may have your favorite municipal park down the street in mind, or a particularly peaceful nook inside a much larger county-run park.

Either way, we want to know about it.
