Pratt Area Chamber of Commerce


Deemed the "Gateway to the High Plains" the area in which Pratt is located is a rolling plain of green grassland, broken by the Ninnescah River and the hills along Elm and Turkey creeks.

Two miles south of Pratt's center, the Ninnescah branches into two forks both of which are fed by crystal clear springs. To the north lie sand hills and dunes which are thought to mark the ancient course of the Arkansas River.

What began as a practical joke is now one of Pratt's most unique features. Pratt's hot and cold water towers have appeared in nationwide publications and many visitors are seen stopping for a humorous double-take or photograph.

Pratt is proud of its 270 acres of parks. Once a tallgrass prairie, Pratt is known as "a tree city." The largest park in Pratt, Lemon Park, is approximately 117 acres and has a nature trail, wood sculptures, pond, shelter houses, gazebo, lighted walking path, and many sports and play facilities.

Pratt is a regional center for shopping, medical care, higher education, cultural activities, outdoor recreation, agriculture, and industry. The hub of Kansas Wildlife and Parks management is located near Pratt and the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks Nature Center is located just two miles east and one mile south of Pratt.
