New Mini-Pitch in Roberts Park!

Thanks to a generous donation from Pro Iowa and their partners, a new mini-pitch is located at Roberts Park.

Pro Iowa, the campaign that looks to bring professional soccer to Iowa, is expanding the world’s game through a unique partnership with Musco Lighting and Kick it Forward to donate ten uniquely designed futsal-sized pitches to communities across the state, a $1 million project in total. 

“We are honored and excited that Pro Iowa selected Council Bluffs as one of the 10 locations for a mini-pitch in Iowa,” said Dan Bettmann, Recreation and Events Manager for the City of Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation Department. 

Musco’s Mini-Pitch System™ Modular Sports Solutions offer communities an ideal opportunity to rejuvenate abandoned courts and areas with limited space, creating a fun and active place that celebrates the spirit of teamwork, empowerment, and fitness around the game of soccer.  Musco Lighting leads the installation of the project at Roberts Park.

The mini-pitch at Roberts Park replaces one of the tennis courts and features lighting, fencing, goals, and benches and is available for public use. Those interested in using the mini-pitch for games or special events can reserve it by calling Council Bluffs Parks and Recreation (712-890-5291).
