The Van Meter Park Board is a group of volunteers committed to the beautification and enhancement of the community. They oversee the maintenance and improvements of the local parks. They also sponsor the Easter Egg Hunt; Garage/Plant Sale in the Spring; Halloween Fun in the park; – and many other fun activities!
Johnson Park is located on Division Street in the southwest corner of town; and the “city park” is located at 505 Grant Street adjacent to the city hall/library. The newest addition to the city park family is the Van Meter Rec Complex located behind Casey’s.
