Nearly 3 miles of trails are constructed on the Waterworks Prairie Park site, looping around the ponds and through the prairie. The trails are part of the Iowa River Corridor Trail network, which extends from Napoleon Park in South Iowa City to the Coralville Reservoir property north of Iowa City, a distance of approximately 9 miles

Nice prairie land and pond. Well paved and little to no elevation change. A nice simple course.
