The Gregory Park is a wooded tract that measures 19-acres off the College Avenue on Sycamore Street. This park was donated by US Veterans Affairs in 1964. Until 1978, the park was referred to as Veterans Park until it changed its name in honor to James K. Gregory, the community’s pioneer businessman who helped the establishment of the Drake Field Airport.

During 2018, the Ozark Off-Road Cyclists helped in adding extensive biking facilities to Gregory Park. This additions includes bicycle skills course, concrete pump track, and 2 one-direction natural-surface downhill mountain-bike trail. The trails are open for everyone and the regional school teams who participates in National Interscholastic Cycling Association also use these trails for practices.
