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.

Fitzgerald Wildlife Area provides youth hunting opportunities for dove, deer, and turkey. Access to these hunts are regulated by permit and can be obtained through the special hunts program.  The new public land is located 13 miles west of Topeka on the north side of Interstate 70.
