Parks, Outdoor Recreation, Library and Activities
Enjoy a refreshing day of relaxation at any of Manning's three parks--the City Park, the Hausbarn-Heritage Park, or Great Western Park. Whether it's ice fishing or a shooting range or camping or anything in between, you can find it here.
Manning started building a trail system in 2012. With several completed segments, bikers, walkers and runners are able to navigate town through the combination of streets/sidewalks as well as trails.

COMING SOON: Milwaukee Trestle Park to be located near the historic railroad trestle on the North end of Main Street. The community intends to add this park and this historic and unique railroad trestle to its list of tourist attractions—the German Hausbarn, Freedom Rock, Trinity Church, Leet-Hassler Farmstead, city water tower, and historic downtown. The proposed adjacent park will serve as a stopping and resting point to view the trestle and will serve as its own point of attraction with shade, picnic tables, barbeque grills, public art, and activity-oriented amenities. The “IOWA” sculpture is made with cast concrete letters. This space would be completely interactive, giving people a place to sit and read, eat lunch, or even play. More information...
