Windsor Heights Community Center

After nearly 6 years in the planning, the Windsor Heights Community and Events Center opened in July of 2010. This signature facility can seat over 200 people and be split into two different sized rooms, depending on your special event needs.

Since opening, the facility has hosted wedding receptions, birthday parties, corporate retreats and trainings and countless other events, including the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. The center has received amazingly positive reviews from citizens and renters who have had the opportunity to experience the facility since it opened.

The ballfield is also for rent and the rental calendar can be viewed here.


The building can be split into a 1/3 size and a 2/3 size or can remain as the entire room, based on the size and demands of your event. The Community and Events Center features a catering kitchen and a concession kitchen, which can be used in conjunction with larger events or smaller events. In addition, the larger room (or the 2/3 size room) has a drop down screen and projector for your presentation needs; all you need is your laptop. The entire building, 2/3 and 1/3 room also have wireless microphones so everyone will have no problem hearing your presentation.

The Community and Events Center is located in Colby Park, 6900 School Street, Windsor Heights, Iowa. The park also has a recently renovated and redesigned ball field, playground and performance pavilion.
