Big Bull Creek Park Project

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.
