Long Description:
After the land donation by Jules Iverson, work was begun surfacing and landscaping the park. In 1936 a community house and Boy and Girl Scout Lodges were constructed. During 1938 new toilet and sanitary facilities were added and by the following year a new swimming pool area in the stream with steel siding lining the shores. A new bath house was constructed in 1940.

During the period of major building at the park much landscaping was done, rip-rap was put in along the banks of the Plover River through the park, fireplaces were built and a Scout council circle was fabricated.

Iverson Park also has become a center for winter sports action. A ski jump scaffold is located near the Jefferson Street park entrance and hills on either side of the Plover River provide fun for ski, sled, and toboggan enthusiasts.
