Parks & Recreation

Having fun and learning something new, that’s what we hope to provide for you and your family. We encourage you to browse our programs, use our facilities, or just relax at a park. Urbandale offers many beautiful parks and outdoor recreational opportunities around almost every corner! We invite you to get out and enjoy one of our 57 parks, 50+ miles of trails, and more than 1,000 acres of parkland. Urbandale is also home to a bustling Senior Recreation Center, numerous sports fields, indoor/outdoor shelters, and facilities for rent.
