Gray's Lake Park

recommendation by landry

Located just outside downtown, Gray’s Lake Park is true Des Moines staple. You can take the Meredith Trail from downtown and enjoy a well-lit, two-mile path with planted flowers all along its way. It’s an excellent urban place for exercise and just another reason I love Des Moines so much (yay for Skywalks!). In the summer the lake’s a real popular attraction for locals who enjoy laying out and swimming. You also can rent paddleboats, hydrobikes, and canoes there.
