Has been the best fountain for years on a large green space the size of a city block. Good place to eat lunch and watch the squirrels or folks walking their dog. Pretty spot in town.

Baylis park has been a fixture in Council Bluffs since 1854. The park was renovated in 2007, with a new fountain and gazebo. Family friendly activities include evening band concerts on Sundays in June. Come see the rare black squirrels.

This lovely one block park is next to the Union Pacific Museum. We found parking on the opposite side of the parking would allow us ample time to visit the museum, but I didn't expect to be enchanted by the short stroll through the park....More
