Harvey County Parks

We understand everyone is wondering about their holiday weekend plans. Especially if they include spending time in a Harvey County Park. At this time we can not, with any accuracy, determine if West Park or East Park will be in any condition to accept visitors. We will do everything we possibly can to make sure we are open. However, we are at the mercy of the weather. Flooding within the parks this week appears to be as bad, possibly worse, than it was last week. As soon as the water recedes we will be working to clean up and repair as quickly as we possibly can. Please continue to check this page as we will post updates as often as the conditions change. ...

We've got the Circle of Health working with folks at the Halstead Housing units.

Thanks, Peace Connections, for bringing the KS Health Foundation HCI: Health Equity grant to Harvey County!

Kansas Health Foundation
In the southeast Kansas town of Arma, residents are working together to ensure everyone has access to fresh produce.

With no grocery store left in town, residents needed a local solution so they didn’t have to drive 20 minutes to Pittsburg. Thus, the idea for a community garden was formed.

The idea came through a process funded by the Kansas Health Foundation Healthy Communities Initiative: Health Equity grants. Crawford County, where Arma is located, was one of 18 recipients of these grants. More than $5 million is being distributed to these recipients during the three-year grant cycle.

In addition to the garden, several food pantries will also be started.

From the City of Sedgwick: Road Closing Update from City Maintenance 6:45am: 1st Street to 4th Street on Madison is closed. Closing Ridge Road South of town. Ridge Road North of town will be closing soon! DO NOT go around barricades, find an alternate route!

Any update on hwy 50 from Newton to Hutchinson?

Yeah, I don't know whose idea at Harvey County it was to start posting the map but it is great and most helpful!!

Lots of running water over 36th between S Essex Heights and Mission

Nw 72nd from Halstead Rd west 2 miles is flooded

Over the road on SW 72nd at Emma Creek bridge

Just remember folks. Most townships DO NOT have enough barricades to mark all the roads. Use some common sense.

How about the road into Halstead from 50 is it open in okay

How would I find out if the turnpike to Oklahoma is open or not?

Hwy 50 to Newton remains open at this time???

There are quite a few out here east of Halstead that should be closed between Hertzler and Ridge road. Lots of high water.

SE 60th and Osage Rd into Whitewater is impassable

All OF YOU JUST BE CAREFUL🙏🙏🙏

What about the Buhler-Haven road?

Are the gates in Halstead closed?

Does anyone know about highway 50 from Newton to Hutchinson? I have to drive there in the morning.

A link to the updated map would be helpful

Is ridge road closed south of sedgwick or on 109th?

Will this be updated before early morning commute? I need to go from Halstead to Newton 😀

The May Park Board meeting planned for this evening at Harvey County East Park in Volunteer Hall has been cancelled. This was a decision made for the safety of our Park Board Members, staff, and any citizens that may have been planning on attending tonight's meeting.
Heavy rainfall and severe weather is still in the forecast for the remainder of the day. Harvey County is in a flood warning until 2:30pm Tuesday. Water levels are starting to rise out of the bank and dirt roads are becoming muddy, soft, and difficult to navigate.
We apologize for the short notice. Our next scheduled meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 10th at 7pm in Volunteer Hall at East Park.
Please call (316)283-5420 with any questions or concerns.
