Eden Park

Eden Park is a 146 acre park donated by Donna Eden in 2011.  The park is open to picnicking and hiking.  Louisa County Conservation hopes to have a grand opening celebration in 2013 after boundary signs are hung and a plan is developed for the new park.


Eden Park is located on County Road X17 near the town of Gladwin.  To get there, take HWY 92 west out of Columbus Junction.  Turn North onto County Road X17 and follow it for three miles until you reach Eden Park.


The habitat consists of former ag ground enrolled in CRP, planted to a mix of cool and warm season grasses.  There is also forest, two creeks and a wetland.  Visitors can expect to see deer, turkey, pheasant, waterfowl and squrrels among other Iowa wildlife.  At this time hunting is NOT allowed at Eden Park.
