Interesting park tucked away in an out-of-the-way part of West Des Moines.Some nice amenities it has:- Dedicated parking- Full size basketball court (could use a little updating)- Bathrooms- Multi-part shelter (there are several picnic tables under several little awnings)- A decent length walking trail/path that winds around through a little wooded areaWhats surprising is just how big this park is, especially compared to most other parks that occupy literally as little space as possible. The interstate being so close detracts a little bit from what would otherwise be a pretty idyllic area, but its not bad as you get over towards the play areas. While there are two playsets, one of them would be fun for smaller kids whereas the one intended for bigger kids is really just a big spider/rope climbing thing, a bigger than-normal rock and a set of steep slides - so I dont know that it would keep older kids occupied for too long.

Great for my small little three year old and even some equipment for older children. If havent been its definitely worth a shot. Great seating areas with overhanging roofs and good lighting. Also two different jungle gyms for beginners and more advanced. Also great views and spectacular trail to hike. Love living in this area and a lot of great families here younger and older. Cant wait till this summer!

A quiet park with a unique setup and a beautiful view (despite being adjacent to I-35). Would be great for a visit during the week as its not very crowded.

Quaint medium sized park offers a small pavilion of coverered picnic tables, playground equipment, fenced basketball court, open field space, and a relaxing walking path. I enjoy the walking path the most. Its about a 1.25k in distance but has two bridges and a mix of paved and crushed rock. Its not uncommon to see wildlife such as deer, raccoons, and an opossum.

Nice park, nice trail mostly finished, climbing, swinging, rock climbing, fun for all. The climbing ropes apparently dont have a weight limit, as I almost made it to the top. :)

Very quiet and peaceful. A walking path which leads down into a lower area. Will be gorgeous when leaves change.
