Nestled in a residential area of Pella, Iowa, Big Rock Park is an unexpected eighty-three-acre oasis of nature in town. It is home to deer, owls, and a plethora of other birds, and the mature stand of native Iowa trees creates a beautiful canopy over the hiking trails. While there will occasionally be another car in the parking lot when you arrive, it’s never crowded. Instead, it’s a place to unwind and soak up nature whether you’re walking a furry friend, cross-country skiing, exploring over two miles of trails, or simply enjoying a shady bench.
So next time you’re visiting Pella for Tulip Time or to eat some delicious Dutch treats, stop by Big Rock Park while you’re there. You can find more information about Big Rock Park on the City of Pella’s website.
