  • I thought I knew Iowa City like the back of my hand. Having grown up in this town when I was younger and driving and walking and riding my bike everywhere I thought I had covered much of the territory...  more »

  • This is a nice paved (mostly) area around the pond - a little less than 2 miles. Good for older folks who need a pretty level, nicely paved area and folks who want to run, bike, etc. Benches every so ...  more »

  • Good location at the end if the Iowa City river corridor trail. A two mile run from downtown (4 mile round trip). Nice place with a playground and a scenic trail around a small lake.
  • I love this "park", the old sand pits. The paved trail around the pond is nice and wide- enough for many people to walk, skate, bike or jog around. My only complaint is that both website and trail need better markers/signs/information posted for easy access and new users: 1.Where is the starting point and start of the measured distance markers (Start, 1 mile, 2 miles, etc.) for those of us who use it to walk as a therapy &/or like to measure our progress? 2. Alerting us to proper direction of travel when bikes and walkers share the path so everyone is on the same page, so to speak. 3. Is the "main entrance" on the North side where the big sign with the name is? Or, is it on the South end where the website says the information board is? 4. Where do the trails lead that branch off and away from this park? Thanks for making a nice walking path and nature area where motors are not heard over here on the often forgotten South and East side of town.
  • I love it here, it's not close to traffic, vehicles are not beside you, as your walking! The pond is beautiful, especially in the mornings, I like the quietness.
  • Perfect short excursion, and a rental always available. ( Need to cook the corn dogs longer, however-- barely warm dog)
  • Needs better signage for the lodge and entrance also a few lights in the parking lot would be nice. Once it got dark it was difficult it find your way out of the parking lot
