Gray's Lake is probably Des Moines' best park. This is a great place to people watch and also was recently connected to Downtown via the new Meredith Trail.
- 1700 Fleur Drive, Greater Southside, Des Moines, IA 50321
Has a nice 2 mile trail. Visited often by various ages. Has a bridge lighted by colored lights at night, a free beach, and small boat rentals available.
Take a walk around once or twice
A relaxing time can be had on the peninsula during the summer months, just watch where you sit.
Did This. Love walking around it.
We have measured a few times...it is closer to 1.9 miles around.
Ipod + doggy= bliss.
Come join us for drumming on the lake near the peninsula. It's alot of fun and all ages are welcome. For more info, lookup Des Moines Drummers on Facebook.

The lake also features paddle boat, hydrobike, and canoe rentals and a very nice beach for laying out and swimming.
Also be sure to keep an eye out for events such as Jetski racing.
