Waterworks Park – North B Street.
If you’re a family looking for a fun and exciting day out, Waterworks Park is the perfect destination. With its beautiful natural surroundings, there’s plenty to explore and discover. Take a refreshing dip in the lake, or take a leisurely stroll along the Fairfield Loop trail, which winds through the park and offers stunning views of the surrounding landscape.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try your luck at fishing in the park’s well-stocked lake, or challenge yourself to a kayaking excursion in the summer months. And when the colder weather arrives, grab your ice skates and hit the ice for a game of hockey with your friends and loved ones.
Waterworks Park also has a shelter area that’s perfect for hosting family picnics, class reunions, and other group events.
Waterworks Park is not only a great place for outdoor fun and adventure, but it is also home to the Bonnifield cabin, the oldest two-story cabin in Iowa. This historic structure offers a glimpse into the past and is a great opportunity to learn more about the area’s rich history. While you can’t tour the inside of the cabin, the exterior is still worth a visit, as it provides a close-up view of the craftsmanship and attention to detail that went into its construction.
So whether you’re looking to relax and enjoy the scenery, or get your adrenaline pumping with some outdoor activities, add Waterworks Park to your Fairfield itinerary.
