| Thomas S. Stoll Memorial Park is JCPRD's
79-acre park located in Overland Park, Kansas. The park's maintenance
and development are fee supported through adult softball and youth soccer
leagues. The park consists of seven athletic playing fields that require
reservations, a small pond, a seven acre dog off-leash area, picnic
shelter, playground and a picturesque walking trail.
The development of this beautiful park utilized a unique combination of funding sources. The parkland was purchased in 1971 with Land and Water Conservation Funds from the U.S. Department of Interior and was matched by the District with local financing. The park was dedicated in 1981 and named in honor of Thomas S. Stoll who was instrumental in the park's development and had died the previous year while serving as chairman of the District’s Board of Park and Recreation Commissioners.
