Big Rock Park

Donated to the City of Pella in 1958, this park boasts 83 acres of native timber.  Located in the northwest corner of the city at the end of Big Rock Road, it has remained in its natural state as much as possible.  Information signs guide visitors through the maze of trails to get to the Big Rock itself.  Wildlife abounds throughout the park and many walkers, joggers, and cross-country skiers take advantage of the park’s solitude as well as its three miles of paths.
