The Council Bluffs Recreation Complex, located at 2900 Richard Downing Avenue, adjoins the Council Bluffs Trails system. Occasionally, trail users utilize the Complex’s parking lot as a Trail Head. The Department of Parks, Recreation and Public Property, recommend against doing so.

For security reasons, the Complex’s three parking lots are locked when games are not underway. Due to the weather dependent nature of games, the large number of tournaments with unique hours, the daily change in game schedules due to rain and the inability to estimate even when scheduled games will end, there can be no specific times for the gates to be locked.

As a result, trail users who leave their cars unattended in the Complex parking lot run the risk of returning to find their car locked in.
