Jackaline Baldwin Dunlap Park and Arboretum – Urbandale, Iowa

Jackaline Baldwin Dunlap Park and Arboretum

Jackaline Baldwin Dunlap Park and Arboretum is a delightful hidden urban garden, donated to the city by a couple who lived nearby. There is a short loop of paved path, with a modern shelter. Lots of benches and picnic tables are spread throughout the shady park. There are several garden sculptures and planted gardens, with a connection to the nearby paved trail.

This is a great spot to take toddlers and preschoolers to bike; the path is long enough to let them go for  awhile before turning or stopping, but not far enough to have any adult bikers.
