Photo ops galore in this artsy park. Have a picnic, take a nap or a leisurely stroll and enjoy the unique sculptures created by both local and international artists.

Just in the past 10 or 15 years Des Moines has gone all in on public art. We're still kind of amazed! And it's right by Black Cat Ice Cream.
