Gateway Park and Preserve

Gateway Park and Preserve is located 1/2 mile north of the of Marengo, Iowa and occupies a portion of the southern bank of the Iowa River. The project site is 131 acres and includes a 41-acre lake and a 12-acre pond which were created through the excavation of sand and gravel which was used for a concrete business. There is a network of walking and biking trails that encompass the lake and pond.

Gateway also has a beautiful arboretum which is taken care of by Iowa County Master Gardeners and community members and volunteers.
