A new carry-down access is proposed along the Cedar Valley Lakes Trail less than a half-mile from downtown Waterloo off of 9th Street. This access would become the first official access downstream of the dams downtown. The most profound improvement recommendations for Pioneer Park are a series of tiered limestone blocks which will provide access to the river for paddlers. In addition, a paved trail is planned from the top of the levee to the back side of the levees where parking is available.
Below is the proposed drawing for the plan.
