Big Rock Park was Pella Preservation Trust's Historic Landmark Award Winner this year!
We're thrilled and you should be too. This is a public park, meant to be enjoyed by the many, not the few. As this article states so clearly, Big Rock Park is a wild nature park--and let's keep it that way. As Pella Preservation trust president Ann Summitt said," We need to take care of what we've been given." Keeping the park wild is one way we can do this. City Councilman Calvin Bandstra added, " The park is a symbol of Pella's generosity and a tradition to treasure and keep."
