What is the cost to swim? I did not find it posted.

** EDIT: The City of Adel recently purchased 40 acres of land just west of the Adel Family Aquatic Center and south of the new ADM Elementary School. This land will be the location of a future Sports Complex and Park. We are in the preliminary stages of this project and are working with a consultant company to develop a concept master plan. This is where your feedback comes into play. We would like to gain a sense of what the citizens feel is important and needed within our community. We will then take this feedback into account when creating a conceptual layout of what the complex and park would entail. **

Public input is very important to the City of Adel Parks and Recreation Department to ascertain the community’s parks and recreation needs and satisfaction with facilities and services offered.

Below is a link to a brief survey. This survey will be utilized by our design consultant to gain a sense of the desires, priorities, and general attitudes of Adel citizens for this new park facility within our community. Please note your responses will be anonymous.

If you have any questions or additional insight you would like to share, please contact me at [email protected] or 515-993-4525.

Adel Parks and Recreation

The City of Adel (the “City”) owns a park called Island Park, which is generally located at 2400 Nantucket Road, Adel, IA 50003.

Island Park has a campground that has been previously operated by the City for seasonal overnight camping (i.e., typically April 15 through October 31, though this is subject to special circumstances like weather conditions).

Currently, the City desires to lease the campground to a private individual or company who will manage and maintain the campground for seasonal overnight camping. This Request for Proposals (RFP) represents the City’s efforts to seek proposals for the 2021 and 2022 camping seasons.

The lease will be governed by a Campground Lease and Operating Agreement.

Proposals are due by Tuesday, March 16, 2021 at 4:30 p.m.

To review the full RFP, which includes detailed instructions and the draft lease agreement, please visit or contact Adel City Hall at (515) 993-4525. Access to City Hall may be limited due to COVID-19.

Don't forget about the Toy Story 4 movie in the park this weekend!


After discovering glass in the pool and on the deck, the Adel Family Aquatic Center is having to close down. We do not know where the glass originated. We do not allow glass into the aquatic center nor do we sell any items in the concession stand in glass. We are guessing that someone came in overnight. If you saw anything suspicious, please notify us at 993-4525. A number of pieces were retrieved from the water, but for the safety of our patrons a complete shut down is necessary. In line with the Model Aquatic Health Code supported by the CDC, the only way to ensure all glass is removed from the pool is by doing a complete drain (3-5 days), followed by an intensive clean. After the pool is drained and cleaned, it will need to be refilled (3-5 days), chemically balanced (2-3 days), and pass a test that is sent to the state hygienic lab before being able to reopen (2 days). As you can see, it is a process that takes quite a long time depending on the conditions, it could take longer. A reopening plan is to be determined.
