Island Park

Location:

Cedar Falls
Franklin (Center) Street,
North of US Highway 57

This area was once the swimming place in Cedar Falls. The boathouse was a Bath House with a big white sand beach going down to the river. The swimming area had big jumping towers and big slides to play on. The river at that time was clear and had a sandy bottom.

In the park itself was a little tiny train you could ride on. It also had a building that had monkeys in it and a carousel. A flood washed the beach out, and the place to swim became the City swimming pool at the Utilities.
