Big Hollow Recreation Area
Big Hollow has become one of Southeast Iowa’s premier outdoor recreation areas. Through grants and generous donations, the community has already invested millions in this multi-use friendly community attraction.
There is so much more planned for the park, though. To learn more about how, together, we'll turn Big Hollow into a World-Class Park, visit the Park Master Plan page.
You may donate to Big Hollow in several ways:

The Flint River Trail is planned to be the largest recreational trail in Southeast Iowa. To make it a reality, we need your help. Whether you can give $5, $500, or $5,000, your help is greatly appreciated and a necessary component to make this trail a reality.
