Landscape Architecture Overview:

Prairie Trail Parks & Trails Master Plan lies within the new development of Prairie Trail in Ankeny. The parks and trails will be one of the highlights of the development, featuring numerous active and passive public spaces, and a network of trails that connect both regionally and nationally. Public input was giving during a 3-day charrette to help discover the needs of the community. Chautauqua Park will be developed on the west side of State Street, north of SW Plaza Parkway and south of Prairie Trail Parkway. This park will serve as a regional trailhead to central Iowa trails including the Woodward, Neal Smith, and Gay Lea Wilson Trail systems. This location also provides trailhead access to the Iowa and National Discovery Trail Systems.
