Sports & Recreation
Iowa City and its curious communities offer space to roam and play in parks, on fields and along trails. Over 42 public parks are spread throughout the area, many of which are equipped with networks of walking and biking trails, quaint picnic sites and prairie reserves. Several annual events are also held outdoors, including the Northside Oktoberfest each September. University of Iowa campus facilities are another great resource, most notably the Campus Wellness & Recreation Center, with a rock wall, leisure pool, courts and more.
