History
Acquired in 2001 from Pam Boehm Maciotek, the land was intended to be the site for a community center which never materialized due to citizen feedback.

Features
This 37-acre community park is located in the central part of the city.  Existing facilities include:
  • InPro Skateboard Park
  • Portable restrooms
  • Soccer Fields
  • Walking Trails
The playground equipment provided on site accommodates both age groups, 2-5 years and 5-12  years.

Future improvements may include a shelter with restrooms and a sand volleyball court.

Conservation Areas
Significant portions of this park have been planted with prairie vegetation.  A stream bisects the northern and southern portions of the park.  Most of the southern portion is in the 100-year floodplain, contains wetlands and a stormwater retention pond.  This area was seeded with a very diverse mix of native wet prairie species in 2010 in a restoration project that included the city-owned Candlewood Outlots to the south.  These lands are part of a 58-acre complex of conservation land protecting this stream corridor that also includes Quietwood Creek Wetlands and private conservancy areas of Quietwood Creek Subdivision.  

Parking
Off-street parking is available.
