Ironwood Park (aka Pirate ship Park) is a unique playground with lots of pirate elements! Kids can “walk the plank”, see the giant Moai statue, or run up the large hills.
This is a super cool playground in Des Moines, built to be all inclusive and available for everyone to play on. There is a dirt nature trail for hiking that is perfect for young kids, too. The playground has all rubber footing, great for muddy days. Built in memory of a local realtor, you can see more about her story here.
This park is just north of Hickman, with several unique climbing options. On top of a beautiful playground, there are 3 free mini golf holes by a small walking trail.
