Des Moines: Rotary Riverwalk Park


Rotary Riverwalk Park in Des Moines is next to the new Lauridsen Skatepark.  My boys loved watching the skaters and are now begging for skateboards.

The park has just a couple play elements.  A huge bobber to climb on and three swings.

While in the area, I recommend crossing the Iowa Women of Achievement pedestrian bridge.  There's a great view of the capitol as you walk east on the bridge.

After you cross the bridge, head north toward the Robert D. Ray Asian Gardens.
