Watkins Park

Managed by City of Parkville

Watkins Park is one of the City’s two neighborhood parks. Located just a few blocks from Main Street, at the intersection of West and 10th streets, Watkins Park features a picnic shelter, small basketball court with goal, a small oval paved walking trail, a swing and an area for horseshoes. The shelter cannot be reserved, but may be used on a first-come, first-serve basis. The park land was donated on behalf of the Watkins family in honor of Bruce Watkins, a prominent citizen and former Kansas City council member.
