PARK, TRAIL AND GREENWAY MASTER PLAN
Bondurant Regional Trailhead
2 Main St. SE
just South of Bondurant Public Safety Building
(101 Grant Street North)
The Bondurant Regional Trailhead is a centerpiece of the Eastern Polk County trail system and Chichaqua Valley Trail. Established in 2013, the 0.7 acre trailhead park features a 1,440 square foot open-air shelter with restrooms and water bottle fill station. This shelter is a replica of the original Bondurant train station that served train passengers from 1883 to 1962. The Trailhead sits on the historic Chicago Great Western rail line. The railway operated from 1883 to 2005. The trailhead rail bed right-of-away was purchased by the City of Bondurant from Bondurant Co-Op in 2011 to create a trailhead park to honor Bondurant’s railroad history.

Lake Petocka is a beautiful, tranquil lake surrounded by a winding biking and walking trail (0.71 miles surrounding the lake). Lake Petocka Park was connected to the rest of the City by trail in 2011, making it easier to get to the park safely without driving. Connecting Lake Petocka Park to the Chichaqua Valley Trailhead has been complete.
The south side of the lake, to the right of the entrance, offers a partially enclosed shelter and a playground (new in 2011
) with slides and swings. A sand volleyball court is on the west side of the lake, close to the park entrance. This court can be reserved along with the Volleyball Shelter next to the court, so parties with Volleyball Shelter reservations have priority. A small open shelter is also located on the east side of the lake (Men's shelter). All shelters are available to reserve through the City; click here
for reservation information. If there are no reservations, park shelters may also be used on a "first-come, first-served," basis.
