Master Plan - Big Bull Creek

Big Bull Creek totals 1,980 acres and is located between Edgerton and Gardner, Kansas in southwest Johnson County. The Johnson County Park & Recreation District initiated the park master planning process in October 2015.

The vision for Big Bull Creek Park is to transform the property into a destination park like no other. JCPRD will focus on nature-based learning, play, and restoration, which supports and compliments not only the immediate neighboring communities but JCPRD's park system as a whole.

JCPRD also plans to restore the integrity of Big Bull Creek Park’s environment and heritage in support of outdoor culture, enhanced education, and public recreation.

The District plans to identify mechanisms for ongoing park maintenance funding, emphasizing habitat, landscape, and stream restoration. There are also plans to construct, design, and designate facilities with ongoing maintenance in mind.

To enhance stewardship and advanced public learning, JCPRD plans to develop ongoing and trusted partnerships to enrich high quality park programming.

In the fall of 2015, JCPRD hired the design team of RDG Planning & Design, CFS Engineers, and Applied Ecological Services to produce a strategic development plan for the park's master plan. Ground breaking for the initial phase was held in April 2017.
