The StoryWalk® Project’s mission is to promote early literacy, physical activity, and family time together in nature.

Urbandale’s StoryWalk® was established in 2017 and is located around the pond in Walker Johnston Park. There are 20 posts and as you stroll down the trail, you’re directed to the next page in the story.

A different story will be featured every 4-6 weeks, spring through fall.

Share your experience on social media with #UrbandaleStoryWalk.

The Urbandale StoryWalk® is sponsored by the Urbandale Public Library and the Urbandale Parks and Recreation Department.

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. Storywalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson. (Visit for more information.)
