Des Moines is a recreational walkers’ paradise with more than 450 kilometers of trails available for walking, hiking, and cross-country skiing in the winter. The busy Gray’s Lake is a fun park area with a three-kilometre paved track encircling the lake and paddle boats, canoes, sailboats, and bikes available for rent. The larger Saylorville Lake is a 25-min drive north of downtown, has camp grounds and golf courses and is a favorite place for water activities, including boating, swimming and fishing. One of the city’s newest and most interesting parks is the Pappajohn Sculpture Park located in Western Gateway Park. It’s an outdoor museum with 24 world-class sculptures valued at more than $40 million donated by local philanthropists.
