This accessible setting, coupled with the skilled landscape design and caliber of the art, makes it unlike any other sculpture park in the United States. The Pappajohns' contribution of 28 works for the park is the most significant donation of artwork ever made to the Des Moines Art Center.

We stopped and enjoyed our morning coffee while we explored the art. It’s a great part of the city’s art culture. Some of the sculptures leave you scratching your head wondering what the artist saw but overall fun and enjoyable.

Park and walk through this unique assembly of sculptures. Definitely a must see when you visit Des Moines. Bring change for the parking meter. Lots of lunch and dinner options nearby. Local tip: If you’re visiting in the summer, food truck vendors gather to serve lunch.
