Waterloo Parks

There are many things to be proud of in our Town — our citizens, our schools, our community spirit and of course our parks. We encourage outdoor activities in our manicured parks featuring various amenities. In addition to our parks, outdoor enthusiasts regularly enjoy a bicycle-pedestrian trail that connects Waterloo with the city of Auburn along County Road 427.  DeKalb Middle and Senior High Schools are less than two miles south at the edge of town along the trail.

Francis Thomas Memorial

All ages enjoy Waterloo’s large playground with swings, slides, a climbing rock and much more. Bring the entire family to picnic near the tables and grills. Play basketball or take in a game of horse shoes. Our covered pavilion with fireplace and electricity has an ADA restroom facility. This 2.9 acre park is located across the street from Waterloo’s historic Train Depot.

Veterans Memorial

Veterans Memorial Park provides a way to pay tribute to the service of our military veterans. Park bench seating surrounds the memorial honoring all branches. Enjoy fishing in the pond, taking your four-legged friend in the dog park area and during the winter, bring your sled to the sled hill. The Veterans Memorial Park is an excellent stop along the trail that connects to the Auburn-Waterloo bikeway.

Eagle Park

Eagle Park, as it’s known by locals, was created on a vacant lot on Wayne Street by the Boy Scouts and is a relaxing place to rest in the heart of the Town. This park features a quaint gazebo, trellis and brick walkway with an attention to beautiful landscaping. You’ll find Eagle Park on Railroad Street and South Wayne across from Town Hall.

Pankop Park is named after Virgil and Ened Pankop who donated the land in 2013 to the town of Waterloo. It is a small neighborhood pocket park that includes a bright red pavilion with picnic tables, playground equipment and a large open green space. This park features an ADA-compliant swing set. Pankop Park sits on the corners of Rope and Colgrove Streets.
