Air Park South (FAA LID: 2K2) was a public use airport in Christian County, Missouri, United States. It was located three nautical miles (6 km) northwest of the central business district of Ozark, Missouri, and 8 nautical miles (15 km; 9 mi) south of Springfield, Missouri. It was owned by the City of Springfield.
In 2001, using federal and state grants, the Springfield-Branson National Airport Board purchased the airport from the City of Ozark, with the intention to use it for general aviation. In 2009, the City of Springfield authorized the airport board to sell the airport, due to the inability to purchase additional land to extend the runway.
