  Ida County
is nestled in the gently rolling hills of northwest Iowa - truly a well-kept secret. The relaxing atmosphere is sure to provide just what you’re looking for…..a well-deserved break from your hectic lifestyle. Take time to check them out - who knows, you may discover the world at your doorstep! Currently, the Ida CCB manages 5 parks, natural areas and historic sites encompassing 574 acres.

Just a snippet: MOOREHEAD PARK -  Once the original site of Ida Grove, Moorehead Park is an area proud of it’s history. In the early 1850’s, the Moorehead family came to settle in what has now become the park. Ruts from the early stagecoach are still obvious near the old (now refurbished) stagecoach inn. The stagecoach barn still stands nearby. It’s hand-hewn and wood pegged timbers display what life was like so long ago. To compliment the historical aspect of the park, the Ida County Historical Society has relocated the original Grant Center Schoolhouse on the property. The schoolhouse is utilized every year as elementary children from the region.
