Big Bull Creek Park Project

Join us for a grand opening celebration on Saturday, September 22 from 11 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Construction for Big Bull Creek Park began in the spring of 2017. The park totals 2,060 acres and will be the largest park in the Johnson County Park & Recreation District (JCPRD) park system. The first phase of development will focus on three areas: the Sunflower Road access point, the combined Park Police and Park Maintenance facility, and a group camp area.

Master Plan & Design

Both a master plan (PDF) and designs for Big Bull Creek were completed in 2016. The vision for the park is to be a destination like no other, focused on nature-based learning, play, and restoration. 

A bid for Phase I development was awarded in late February 2017 to National Streetscape Inc., of Blue Springs, Missouri. Completion of the park is anticipated summer of 2018. The estimated project cost is $6 million.
