Independence is a very recreational minded community. Complete with a Civic Center, Baseball/Softball Complex, Municipal Swimming Pool, RV Park & Campground and 17 parks including the new Riverwalk Parks, there is no shortage of recreational activities to be involved with.

Independence is home to some of the most unique and beautiful parks in all of Northeast Iowa. In 2002, development began on the new Riverwalk Parks. Residents and visitors alike can take a riverside stroll along the Wapsipinicon, relax and listen to summer tunes in the Riverwalk Band Shell or kick off your shoes and play some sand volleyball on the courts. Eleven of the seventeen parks have amenities such as a shelter, restrooms, electricity and picnic tables and seven of these parks are complete with well maintained and safe playground equipment.

Independence is also home to the Falcon Civic Center. The center has racquetball and basketball courts, a game room, state-of-the-art weight lifting and exercise room, men's & women's locker and shower rooms, and a sauna was added in 2004. The Civic Center hosts skating parties, craft shows, and other community functions.

Youth programs are the corner stone of the Independence Parks and Recreation Department. They offer youth basketball, football, soccer, tennis, racquetball, volleyball, swim lessons, walleyball, hockey, skating, baseball and softball programs.

The Parks and Recreation Department also offers an assortment of adult programs and activities. They include volleyball, walleyball, fitness classes, softball, football, swim lessons, basketball, racquetball and golf.
