Gans Creek Recreation Area is a 320-acre park in southeast Columbia on E. Gans Road off of Highway 63 at the Discovery Parkway exit. The park was planned together with A. Perry Philips Park, which is located on the north side of E Gans Road, so that together the parks would make up a southeast regional park to serve Columbia and surrounding communities. Currently, Gans Creek Recreation Area has multipurpose sports game fields and a concession/restroom with more amenities under construction. It is the home of Columbia’s premiere cross county track that serves as the home course for the University of Missouri.
