Background
The Shawnee Parks and Recreation Department is adding a new park for our residents and community to enjoy at 55th and Belmont Drive. At the February 10 City Council meeting, the Governing Body voted to name the new park Wilder Bluff Park.

We held two public meetings and, with that feedback, finalized the designs for the park. The City is partnering with Centric and Confluence to develop Wilder Bluff Park.

It is set to open in Spring 2021.
