From a natural heritage standpoint, Southeast Iowa is a striking combination of hills, valleys, prairies, rivers, streams and timberland. The same qualities that attracted Native Americans to this area provide a rich “natural architecture” for those who live and visit here.
Four seasons grace the community, with each providing its own beauty, charm and activities. From ice skating in beautiful Crapo Park to a spring evening at Community Field watching minor league baseball, to a summer day at the waterpark, there is something for everyone.
