Current Project - Tower: Kill Creek Park

The Johnson County Park and Recreation District (JCPRD) is excited to announce the development of the first observation tower in Kill Creek Park. In the summer of 2017, JCPRD began planning for the construction of the 58 ft. structure.

The tower will provide an opportunity for patrons to experience the park like never before. 

Construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2018, with completion and opening ceremony in spring of 2019.
