The Park Department received $1.175 million dollar grant to build future trails in Oelwein. The City of Oelwein is in need of community support each year for the next four years to complete the trail system as planned. The City is always looking for people to assist in our future endeavors though volunteering and fiscal support.

The trail system currently offers 4.2 miles of walking/biking trails throughout the city. Starting at the Oelwein Family Aquatic Center, the trail winds south through Reidy Park and past Platt Park then crosses 10th Street SE. The trail then traverses around to the exterior of the Oelwein Industrial Park before ending at the Veteran's Memorial Sports Complex. Starting in the southeast part of Redgate Park this trail winds though the wooded area of the southwest quadrant of Oelwein, before it skirts the City of Oelwein utility shops. The trail crosses 6th Ave SW and skirts a creek before ending at Levin Park.
Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress and working together is success.
Teamwork makes the dream work.
Don’t aspire to be the best on the team. Aspire to be the best for the team.
It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.
Great things are done by a series of small things that are brought together.
Teamwork occurs when diverse abilities and insights join together to work toward a common goal.
