Parks & Recreation

POLICY OF NON-DISCRIMINATION: Belle Plaine Parks & Recreation Department programs and facilities are available to all citizens regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. Reasonable accommodations and support can be requested to provide an individual's participation in desired programs and activities. Some programs require meeting age and skill criteria.

ACCIDENT/INCIDENT INSURANCE: The City of Belle Plaine does not provide accident/incident insurance for team or individual participants in Parks and Recreation Department sponsored programs or events. All participants assume their own risk of accident or injury while participating. Check with your personal insurance agent to assure coverage.

CAMPING AREA: There are four camping spaces (one concrete space) located in Franklin Park. Electrical hook-ups, restrooms, and a dump station are available. These spaces are on a first-come first -serve basis. Fee is $15 per day and is payable at City Hall. Contact Parks and Rec. Director to make arrangements.

DONATE A TREE PROGRAM: If you or your group would like to commemorate a special occasion or remember a loved one, plant a tree in one of the City's parks. Endorsed by the Park Board, the Donate a Tree Program is a year round program. For further details contact the Recreation Department.

EQUIPMENT RENTAL: Need some recreation/sports equipment for a special event? Baseballs, softballs, gloves, bats, footballs, soccer balls, Bags game (both boards & bags) and other miscellaneous equipment are available to rent for $5.00 per day. Phone 444-2200 to make arrangements.

SHELTER RESERVATIONS: Contact the Recreation Office and reserve a shelter for your special outdoor activity. For just $10.00 a day, you can reserve a shelter or the Gazebo at Box Memorial, Franklin (2), Williams, Beautiful Plaines Prairie park or Anderson Park.

VANDALISM: Each year, the Belle Plaine taxpayers must cover the cost of repairing or replacing park facilities and/or vegetation that have been willfully damaged or destroyed. Since most parks have limited supervision, it is difficult to catch vandals who cause this damage. You can assist by reporting any acts of vandalism to the Parks and Recreation Department at 444-2200 or the Police at 444-2323.
