Branson’s Stockstill Park Reopens

Stockstill Park Reopens June 2019

The City of Branson’s Stockstill Park reopened to the public on Wednesday June 5, 2019 after being closed since May 1, 2019, due to damaged sustained by flash flood waters from nearby Roark Creek.

The park has been affected by flooding many times over the past years. Each time, City officials look for ways to lessen the parks risk of damage and continue to look for options for the parks future.

“Because that park is prone to flood damage, going forward we will continue to place more emphasis on natural elements of the park, like the creek access and open green spaces for people to enjoy. The walking path has been repaired and is ready to use as concrete has been poured in place of the asphalt that was damaged,” said Branson Parks & Recreation Director, Cindy Shook. “Stockstill Park is one of our most popular parks so we will continue to look for ways to make improvements for our residents and guests,” Shook said.

The City of Branson would like to thank the hard work of City staff and a group of community volunteers who helped to clean the debris, clear trees and chop wood to get the park ready to open.
