I discovered this place randomly while driving through Tiffin, Iowa from Iowa City. I hardly had any expectations when I pulled in, but was instantly amazed at the beauty of this park.
This park is a part of Prairie restoration project. There are some wonderful view points from where one can enjoy the beauties of the park, and try to imagine the beautiful Prairie landscape of the yesteryears. Time seems to be in a standstill at this park. I saw many beautiful birds, butterflies and flowers there. It's so quiet that I could hear insects and birds while driving with my windows down. The roads in the park offer a very scenic drive.
The education center concerning the Prairie restoration was closed, though it could be because it was a Sunday. I didn't go to the lake, as it seems that the road leading to it was blocked. I didn't take any trails, but there are a few very beautiful ones covered in lush green grasses that I want to come back and try.
There are many educational signs and boards about the history and landscape of the area. There are also binoculars to watch distant birds and butterflies, and whatever else you fancy! It was very calm and quiet. Definitely would recommend.
