Hillview Recreation Area unveils new indoor facility
There's a new gathering space at the Hillview Recreation Area west of Hinton, Iowa. The Plymouth County Conservation Board cut the ribbon on a building that be used for educational classes and serve as a meeting spot for large groups.
This indoor facility has been a dream for many... since the park first opened more than 30 years ago.
More than 80 events have already been booked for this year.
"It's beautiful lush hills of prairie, forest and grasslands. It's a view of the park and the surrounding countryside. So, it's just a fantastic, serene view," said Dennis Stohl, executive director of Hillview.
The final price tag was $525,000. That's $25,000 more than expected, but was made up for with donations.
