Cowley Park

 A two-acre park with a traditional gazebo.

Activities: Community celebrations such as 4th of July festival and summer music fests Hours: Open dawn to dusk

As the focal point of so many of the city’s community celebrations, Cowley Park is arguably the most well known of Prospect parks. Named for former Prospect Mayor Don Cowley, the park sits at the confluence of Hunting Creek Drive, Deep Creek Drive, and Westover Drive in the Hunting Creek neighborhood.

Highlighted by its traditional gazebo, the two-acre park offers a gentle rest stop for walkers and joggers as well as ample room for family events. The gazebo can even be reserved by stopping by City Hall and obtaining a free park usage permit. From the city’s Fourth of July spectacular to the ever popular Pun’kin Paintin’ event for kids, Cowley Park hosts well over two thousand people a year!
