The Iowa River Landing Wetland Park
Located between the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center and the Iowa River, is a two-acre pond surrounded by five acres of wetlands. A series of elevated walkways ring the pond and traverse the wetlands on the east side of the hotel, and a viewing tower serves as an observation point. A limestone outcropping with a cascading waterfall is located at the north end of the pond. The park is an ideal location for nature walks, bird watching, and wildlife photography.
