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 Fastpitch tournament in June.

Walcott’s Splash Pad opened on August 7, 2019. The Splash Pad is located on W. Otis Street, across the street from Wescott Park and is open daily in the summer from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
