We're excited to have you join us on our journey as we transform the former quarry into a 480 acre recreational park.
Our Mission: To develop, operate and maintain a park and recreational system which enriches the quality of life for residents and visitors alike, while being stewards of the land which preserves the legacy of Colfax for future generations.
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 and was no longer a profitable quarry and sat vacant. Several community members approached the company and discussions began to have the auxillary park board and eventually the city of colfax acquire the park.
We're currently working with the architecture firm Confluence to create a master plan for the park with many stakeholders to provide input on the vision of the park.

We would love to have you join our monthly park board meetings. We're always looking for more people to join our vision of transforming the park.
