Recreation

Powerhouse Outdoor Recreation Park: The City of Fullerton has begun work on the Powerhouse Outdoor Recreation Park. This area of about 21 acres was the location of a hydroelectric plant on the Cedar River. Built in the 1920's, it was taken out of service in the 60's and the land turned over to the City. This unique piece of land includes the old powerhouse building and Five Acre Island located in the Cedar River. Safety fences have been recently installed and the bridge to the island has been repaired to allow pedestrian access. Currently the City is planning a walking trail on the island and a boat ramp on the mainland side of the River. The boat ramp to the Cedar River will be open in the Spring of 2016. Please check out the site plan of the Park:
