NOTICE: Avoid using Council Bluffs Recreation Complex as a trailhead.

The Council Bluffs Recreation Complex, located at 2900 Richard Downing Avenue, adjoins the Council Bluffs Trails system. Occasionally, trail users utilize the CB Rec Complex’s parking lot as a trailhead. 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, a large number of tournaments with unique hours, the daily change in game schedules due to rain, and the inability to estimate 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 Council Bluffs Recreation Complex parking lot run the risk of returning to find their car locked in.

Iowa Smokefree Air Act--smoking is prohibited during any and all events taking place in the park.
