Wilderness Park
Visit Wilderness Park - 907 W. McKay - Frontenac

Wilderness Park was donated to the City of Pittsburg by the Casaletto family. This was done to preserve its diverse ecosystem. Its goal is to become a recreational and cultural resource for the entire Southeast Kansas area to enjoy.


The over four miles of trails travel a diverse natural environment that includes wetlands, forested areas, grasslands, and a portion of the Cow Creek tributary system. A major portion of the trail system is ADA-accessible along with more challenging trails that rise above on ridges created by open pit mining.

There are four nice fishing pits for your enjoyment:
  • Deep Ell Pit
  • Little Pit
  • Long John
  • White Snake
