The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is asking Iowans what they want from their state park system and their closest state park in particular.

One of the meetings being held around the state will be at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 11 in the Bellevue State Park lodge near Bellevue, Iowa.

The two-hour meeting will collect information from state park users that will provide direction for services and amenities to keep the state parks premier destinations for years to come.

“These meetings are designed to allow our users to tell us directly what they want from their state park, how we can improve their local state park, and where they see their state park in five years,” said Kevin Szcodronski, chief of the Iowa DNR’s State Parks Bureau.
