Nice place to stroll, eat lunch/have a picnic, or let your kids run around and play in the sprays. Meter parking very nearby. I'm guessing it would be very pretty at night with everything lit up. Me and my husband had a nice afternoon stroll...More

Has been the best fountain for years on a large green space the size of a city block. Good place to eat lunch and watch the squirrels or folks walking their dog. Pretty spot in town.

There are spouts of water that kids can play in. Great picnic area. Close to railroad museum and squirrel cage jail. Kids can run parents can visit.

Baylis park has been a fixture in Council Bluffs since 1854. The park was renovated in 2007, with a new fountain and gazebo. Family friendly activities include evening band concerts on Sundays in June. Come see the rare black squirrels.
