The Stilwell Community Park

Stilwell Community Park is Johnson County Park & Recreation District's newest park. The 55-acre park opened on June 20, 2015, and is located 1/2 mile east of Metcalf Avenue in Stilwell, Kansas.  The all inclusive playground ribbon cutting occurred on September 29, 2018 launching the end of Phase 2 to include the play structure, pavilion and restrooms.

The park is being developed through a unique partnership between JCPRD and the Stilwell Community Organization. JCPRD funded the acquisition and first phase development of the park, and the community organization has launched a capital campaign to fund future improvements.

The primary feature of the park’s phase one development is a one-mile looping trail. The asphalt trail crosses over Camp Branch Creek and traverses a wetland, grassland and riparian woodland. Other features of the park include picnic table sites, an information kiosk, a portable restroom, charcoal grills, and a paved parking lot.

Plans for future development include a playground, multi-use sports fields, a gazebo picnic shelter, and restroom building. The paved trail loop will ultimately serve as the southern access point to the future Camp Branch Streamway Trail, which is planned to connect to the Blue River Trail.

Camp Branch Glade

Camp Branch Glade is a minimally developed 58-acre park that features a unique ecosystem. Opened in November 2014, the park's forested areas and rare limestone glade habitat make it unlike any other park in the JCPRD system. Located west of Mission Road on 175th street, Camp Branch Glade will eventually be connected to two other district park properties once they are developed - the adjacent 300-acre Camp Branch Park site and the future Camp Branch Streamway Park.
