1700 South Riverside Drive, Iowa City
P: (319) 356-5100
I have enjoyed the time I have spent here this year. I was Taken by the rivers view the wildlife the canoe kayak and Fishing boats. Fisherman come and fish almost daily. Across riverside drive is the Iowa City Airport. It is quite busy. Flights and lessons in flying I suppose. The planes come in so low you think you could touch them. The Hawkeyes Chopper is over in the U of I bunker and can be seen often. Go Hawks. I have picked up all the trash over this summer. There is a barrier between Iowa City Parks and Recreation & Johnson County Conservation Board. I did find someone who was able to get a contractor bag off to the landfill.. Both have opted for the other to replace the gravel. Maybe top it off with a nice mix of river rock. City says it is not a paved park. Of course not. Who wants a pavement. The edge though Riverside Drive... gaping holes and bumps to any vehicle or boat trailer. I created (always room for improvement)a stone fire ring for cooking fresh coffee even a breakfast or two. I've had The Fire Department and the County and Local Sheriff and Police come. They all were very nice and approved and appreciated the way I have made it safely crafted and I have promised them that the fire would always be doused with water. It's the Right thing to do. I would hope anyone who will use it knows the rules. The Rules of the Park are stated on the signs. There's a Prairie in progress Sturgis Ferry Boat ramp to the river its edge and its beautiful place. I would like to see replace the picnic table. Take out what you take in. The park is not a dump site. Nor should it ever be. Thanks to everyone who comes here. Sue&Bear's Adventure 2021
The parking area needs a little work but other than that nice easy access to the river
Just a gravel dirt ramp and a picnic table. But ok place to watch the river
Did we have snow? Yes we had a ton of snow!

This is not really a park. There is a boat ramp and a place to park. Otherwise, nothing, not even a trash can. It should be called a boat ramp NOT a park.
