Welcome to our Parks

Neosho parks offer a place to relax and recreate.

Big Spring Park

Big Spring Park is the crown jewel of Neosho, featuring a unique floral clock, 1920s Grecian stage, kids wading pool, and the popular trout and koi pond where generations of people have enjoyed feeding the fish from nearby feeders. Big Spring Park is a popular place for weddings because of its natural beauty. City officials have recently revived the park as a location for community events as well.

Morse Park

Morse Park is the largest park in the city. Flowing through the entire length of the park is Hickory Creek, a White Ribbon Trout Stream. This means that trout fishing is permitted throughout the year, with catch and keep allowed from March 1 through Oct. 31. All other fishing regulations apply. Hickory Creek is home to both Brown and Rainbow Trout, as well as Bass.    

Morse Park also includes a 1.73 mile pedestrian and bicycle nature trail that winds along the serene waters of Hickory Creek. A recent 1,600 foot addition offers an alternate loop route, and the paved trail is currently being extended to include a path around the Neosho National Fish Hatchery. 

Also located in Morse Park is a disc golf course, several baseball, softball, and soccer fields, and outdoor basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts. The park also includes RV and tent camping areas for visitors who wish to stay in town a few days.

Other parks in Neosho, such as Scenic and Crystal Springs, offer a quiet place to enjoy lunch, read, or take an afternoon snooze.

Life is peaceful in Neosho.
