Alice Nizzi Park

Alice Nizzi was a Waukee community fixture who ran the infamous Spaghettiland restaurant throughout the mid-20th century. The design of this park is a nod to Nizzi’s legacy and the rich history of Waukee’s coal mining camps. Alice Nizzi Park is a 3.17-acre neighborhood park located north of Hickman Road and west of Alice’s Road. The park will feature a spaghetti and meatballs-themed playground, rubberized surfacing, sidewalks, a shade structure and historical elements.
