Downtown Dexter, Iowa

Intersection of Del Rio Road and State Highway 925

The City of Dexter provided a great way to have fun and get healthy by enhancing the local park. Residents and visitors enjoy the new LifeTrail Fitness Circuit, its connecting trail, and a new children’s playground built in the unique and appealing shape of a barn. An NPS Land and Water Conservation Fund cost share grant helped the town build the trail and playground and work toward its goal of a safe, healthy, and happy community. Dexter City Park is a small park in a small town that offers big benefits to its community.
