Overview

This future park will bring together community members of all ages.

Marshalltown suffered tremendous damage from a strong thunderstorm in 2018. West End Park was especially impacted, with the loss of a shelter and many of the park's trees. This park is located behind the school and within the community's entertainment district where multiple outdoor events occur.

Among the park's amenities is an outdoor event space capable of holding 150+ people while accommodating food truck parking. The park also features an architectural shelter that acts as the performance stage and concession/restrooms. The park is tied together by a walking trail that loops through the park, stream bank restoration that incorporates lawn paths alongside its banks, a boardwalk with rain gardens for stormwater storage, a natural playscape, Futsal courts, and a baseball practice field.

With the opportunity to re-imagine West End Park, Bolton & Menk assisted the community in developing a park plan that links North 13th Street to West End Park and provides a new place for events to occur along North 13th Street. The park brings together multiple users, with a variety of amenities for all ages.
