The Community Services Department is proud to maintain 15 diverse parks for the City of Pella. A map of the City shows where each park is located.

Tulips/Flower Gardens
The Parks Department maintains over 185 flower beds in the City of Pella. Each year tulips are planted in the fall and removed in May to be replaced with annual flowers. For 2017 bloom, approximately 101,000 tulip bulbs were planted in parks and along the streets. We plant a variety of early, mid and late blooming bulbs to ensure the longest bloom season possible. In May the tulips are replaced with 27,000+ annual flowers, in over 45 varieties, that will provide color into late summer.

Community Gardens
The Community Services Department is excited to offer Community Gardens. This program is designed to bring gardeners, both amateur and experienced, together in a community-based experience. Each participant will be required to sign a Guidelines & Plot Rental Agreement which is intended to inform gardeners of the rules that govern the program and to hold gardeners accountable for their plot and its maintenance. The installation of the gardens was made possible thanks to financial contributions from the Leighton State Bank, Marion County Bank, Pella Business Women Club, and Pella Kiwanis Club. Call 628.4571 for availability.

Geocaching
Geocaching is an entertaining adventure game for GPS users. Participating in a cache hunt is a good way to take advantage of the wonderful features and capabilities of a GPS unit. The basic idea is to have individuals and organizations set up caches all over the world and share the locations of these caches on the internet. GPS users can then use the location coordinates to find the caches. Once found, a cache may provide the visitor with a wide variety of rewards. All visitors are asked to do is leave something for the cache if they get something. Download the Geocache Permit Application.
