Thank you to the family who removed the rocks others had thrown from the shore out onto the Oleson Park pond. It really should go without saying, but please don't throw things into/onto the pond. This area is meant to be enjoyed by all park visitors - help us keep it that way.

As a general reminder, there are cameras in this area. ‍

The annual migration of rocks

Tyler Schadegg

Makes me so mad that people think this is ok to throw these rocks or destroy the beauty the city took the time and money for others to enjoy! Thank you to the family that took the time to place the rock where they belong.

The sign says security cameras in use if that’s true then find out who did it!!

Swear Fort Dodge can’t have anything nice because of disrespectful people

I found this posting incredibly ironic given it is at Oleson Park. I would like to know when the city plans to stop throwing/dumping their landscaping trash and sand/garbage from the street cleaner in the two valleys circled below? These valleys are on the south end of the park used to be natural and full of live trees. It really is a shame to see how they are managing this part of the park. I basically grew up in and around that park 20 years ago so seeing wooded valleys now filled up with the waste/trash is a shame. I encourage people to take a hike in the park to see this situation.

About 10 kids probably 6 to 12 year old. I chased them away yesterday about 4:00 PM.

The city ruined that park

Thank you to Kathy Krause for giving us permission to use this gorgeous image from Loomis Park! Her description of the photo titled 'Snow Starred Grove':

'Shadows start to appear when the sun lowers on Loomis Park. The beautiful Park is along the Des Moines River and is a beautiful drive. After the snow storm snow was still piled against the trees along the river. It was a beautiful sight! The sun cresting against the tree trunk made it even more beautiful as the bright 'star' effect caresses the tree.'
