  • We had a really cool afternoon with the kids wandering through, looking and reading about the art. It's a really great walk and a neat thing to have here in Des Moines.  more »

  • I love the sculpture park. It's a testament to Describe Moines' dedication to the arts and culture that is largely under-appreciated by anyone who's never been here. Unfortunately, there is a cleanliness issue that must be addressed. There aren't enough trash receptacles for the public to help maintain this otherwise lovely space. I'd love to see creative solutions for that as well as a few shaded spaces in the future. In the meantime, this will still be one of my favorite spots in the city.
  • “Cool art” We didn't know about this park before arriving to Des Moines. But it was so well signed we decided to check it. We weren't sorry. It's cool. It's suitable for everybody. And it's free. Finding a parking spot was easy.
  • If you are passing through I would suggest a visit. It's not very big but it's a nice place to sit and have coffee.
  • Amazing downtown park with a ton of Greenspace and relevant art. My kids love to walk around the park with us, fun for the whole family.
  • Great place to farm pokemon go items. Very pretty to walk through at night. Sculptors are all unique and interesting, great place for tourism and congregating.
