April 22, 2016
The Colfax North Park will transform a former quarry into a 480-acre multi-use outdoor park and recreation facility with economic development opportunities· view full ·
The Colfax Park North Park was donated by Martin Marietta in April of 2014 to the City of Colfax, IA. It was formerly a sand & gravel quarry but closed several years ago. The Colfax Park & Recreation Auxilliary Board is a public agency of volunteers, working to meet the recreational needs of the growing Colfax community.
Confluence is working with the Auxiliary Board to develop a master plan for the site. Ideas discussed include: cable park; RV and primitive camping; trails; beach; indoor shooting range; park lodge; retail and a hotel site.
A stakeholder meeting was held in December 2015 to gather initial ideas and input and additional opportunities for community and stakeholder engagement are anticipated.
