Founders Park

Eureka! We found it!

Founders Park is located just behind the City Fire Station, one block East of the stoplight and 1/2 block North.


Founders Park is so named for the spring located at the Northwest corner of the park on the alley. There is a monument at the spring location commemorating the discovery of the spring and the naming of Eureka by the founding pioneers. The story relates that a weary group of settlers had heard of a spring in the area and short on water had begun a diligent search for it. One lucky settler, after coming across the spring, called out "Eureka! I have found it!".

Located in the park is a wonderful pavilion designed and built by students from K-State. The Pavilion can be used for family gatherings, outdoor events and presentations, cook-outs and other activities. There is electricity available and water is planned for the future.
