BRANSON, Mo. —  A Branson park is now closed after waters from a nearby creek damaged a park path, fences and scattered debris.

The City of Branson closed Stockstill Park, according to a news release from the city.

Two ball fields, the playground and two larger pavilions are closed.

Branson Parks and Recreation Director Cindy Shook  said waters from Roark Creek flooded the park, washing away mulch and depositing rock, gravel and limbs.

“We hope to schedule a community volunteer cleanup day as we have done in past years for Stockstill Park, and have already received so much support from the caring Branson community for which we are grateful,” said Shook.

Stockstill reservations will be moved to the Branson RecPlex.

Five other Branson parks are closed as well.

• Alexander Park is closed due to high water.
• North Beach Park is closed due to high water.
• The Dog Gardner Golf Course is closed due to high water.  
• The Branson Community Center will be open limited hours to serve a lunchtime meal only.  
• The Branson Lakeside RV Park has been closed and recovery efforts will begin as soon as water subsides.
