Big Bull Creek Park

Big Bull Creek Park celebrated its grand opening on Sept. 22, 2018. The park totals 2,060 acres and is the largest park in the Johnson County Park and Recreation District (JCPRD) park system. Located between Edgerton and Gardner, Kansas in southwest Johnson County, the vision for Big Bull Creek Park is to transform the property into a destination park like no other.
