Kennedy Park

KP entrance sign

The largest and most popular area managed by the Webster County Conservation Board is John F. Kennedy Memorial Park. Construction of Kennedy Park began in 1962 and the park was officially dedicated in 1965. The park is a 400 acre multi-use facility that offers something for everyone.  Whether you have an entire weekend or just a few hours, you will find fun and excitement for the whole family.  There are 6 open shelter houses with grills scattered throughout the park that are on a first-come first-serve basis.  Many shady picnic sites are available with grills, water, playground equipment, and sanitary facilities. There are miles of hiking trails as well as a softball field and a volleyball court located in the park. For more park information or to see the park map please clink the buttons below.
