Galloway Creek Nature Park is a 40 acre tract of land purchased by the City of West Plains with the understanding that the land would be developed into a recreational park. Galloway Creek, a 5.3 mile long tributary creek runs through the property.
Areas incorporated in the park and serve as a "green area" for wildlife communities. The park reserves the natural habitat of many native plants and animals. Amenities include a covered bridge, pavilion, play area, walking trail and picnic tables.
The park is a great way for families to spend quality time together enjoying the outdoors and learning about nature. The park is maintained by various civic organizations, local Boy and Girl Scout troops, environmental agencies and the City of West Plains.
The park is also host to the annual event Haunting in the Hollows, held the third Saturday in October each year.
