Park & Recreation

Kinnick-Feller Riverside Park

Kinnick-Feller Riverside Park is Adel’s oldest park and is home to the original football field Nile Kinnick played on in his youth. At 23 acres, the park is also currently one of the largest parks within the community. The park has ball fields, a football field, trail loop, and group picnicking. The Little Theatre Community Hall is available for rental through a private business. The park was also once home to the City’s community pool, which have now been removed with the opening of the new Aquatic Center.
