Parks and Recreation

Walcott has five parks with various amenities! Throughout the summer, Little League and the Tri County Men’s Fastpitch Softball League utilize Victory and Wescott Parks. Games can usually be found at both parks most nights throughout the week. Many tournaments are played in Walcott including the Iowa Area Fast Pitch tournament which Walcott hosted for the 33rd consecutive year in 2017! The Fastpitch Invitational was held May 26th – 28th and another Fastpitch Tournament is scheduled for July 21st – 23rd.    Call Larry Koberg at 563.284.6796 for fastpitch tournament questions.

For many years the City has sponsored a Summer Youth Program for ages 5 – 14. This six week program includes 54 hours of fun filled activities! On Mondays and Wednesdays the children are transported to Camp Abe Lincoln for activities (rain or shine) and field trips are on Fridays. The 2017 program started on June 12th. Fees will be $70 per participant for children residing within city limits or Fire District #6 and the full cost of $196.45 for non-residents.  2017 Summer Youth Program
