Return To Fairmount Park

What do we have to look forward to this coming year of 2015? I’m sure all of you are very excited about November’s announcement from the city to invest in a major renewal project for Fairmount Park. The “Return to Fairmount Park” project will be a nearly $1 million project over the coming year. We want to recognize that this is being made possible, in part, by a $100,000 lead donation from the Rotary Club of Council Bluffs as their celebrate their 100th year of service.
Once considered the greatest park in the area and a regional destination, Fairmount Park has a history of being one of the premier parks in the country in the early parts of the last century. It featured a greenhouse, ice-skating, sledding, a petting zoo and an old bell tower. Council Bluffs’ trolley streetcars once had a stop at Fairmount Park. You can find further details on the project at the link below.
