Decorah Parks and Recreation is now offering a reservation program for fire pits at Phelps Park Shelter #1, Whalen Cabin, Will Baker Park, and Upper Twin Springs Park. Firewood will be provided; patrons should bring their own chairs and are responsible for starting and extinguishing the fire. Fire pits are available 7 days a week, but all reservations must be made Monday thru Thursday, from 8 am to 4 pm, by calling the Park-Rec. Office at (563) 382-4158.
There is no reservation fee, but patrons are encouraged to make a free will donation to support the Decorah Parks System. A cash donation or check payable to Decorah Park-Rec. may be put in an envelope addressed to Decorah Park-Rec. and dropped in the Water Bill Drop Off Slot at the front entrance of the Decorah Municipal Center. You may also mail it to Decorah Park-Rec., PO Box 513, Decorah, IA 52101.
