Chautauqua Park is the biggest of the parks at Prairie Trail with 46 acres. Chautauqua will offer many options, including “Great Lawns” for play and relaxing; a lake for fishing; trails for walking, riding, and running; and landscaping to savor. The area of reconstructed wetlands, native grasses and flowers will become the regional trailhead for the Central Iowa Trail System. Play structures and signage will fit an earlier time and feel, much the same way that Prairie Trail housing styles evoke the past.
The Estates at Prairie Trail, site of the 2015 HomeShow Expo will back up to the west side of Chautauqua Park.
