Osceola also offers beautiful parks: East Lake Park – east on Highway 34 that offers wonderful shelters for picnics, fishing, playground equipment, and the lookout tower. East Lake is also home to a pair of trumpeter swans (and offspring) that are a very popular attraction. We also have Q-Pond Park that has limited playground and shelters as well as walking trails. This park is located west of town on Clay Street.
Register today to be part of the Clarke County Iron Track Challenge!
Osceola Chamber Main Street wants to invite you to challenge yourself this fall at our new event: The Clarke County Iron Track Challenge! This event is a 5k obstacle course that will take part at Q-Pond Park and Clay Street Gym in Osceola. The run will be over flat and rough terrain and will have obstacles along the path to test a runner's agility and ability. The run will start at Q-Pond Park and end at the Clay Street Gym across the street from the park.
After the run, all participants are invited to take part in a free lunch and entertainment afternoon at Clay Street Gym. Music will be provided by Iowa Rock N Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Echos Five! There will be a beer tent as well, but the drinks are on your own! Drinks (non-alcoholic) will be provided with the meal. Have friends and family that want to come support you, but don't want to run? They can buy into the lunch provided by Hy-Vee and celebrate your great effort at the run!
At 4pm, the event moves inside the Loft on Clay for the Iron Track Challenge Awards Banquet. There will be awards for the runners, games, raffles, and auctions to keep your whole family having fun. A bottomless cup is provided for those who attend that is good for keg beer and/or soda pop. A meal will be served as well, so if you leave hungry after the day's events, it's not from a lack of food!
The proceeds from the event go to helping build trails in the Osceola community. In fact, the Iron Track Challenge course will take place on a trail that is set to be paved in part this October. So even if you don't run, you still have plenty of ways to help contribute to this great cause and we hope to see you there!
Modern loft-style living in the heart of southern Iowa.
