The City of Des Moines is in the planning stages to build, replace and repair play areas in parks throughout our community. New play areas would be installed at Des Moines Beach Park and Steven J underwood Memorial Park; aging play structures would be replaced at Cecil Powell Park, Kiddie Park, Westwood Park and Wooton Park and repairs would be made to existing play areas at Midway Park and Water Tower Park.
This survey will help us to better understand how your household currently uses the city’s play areas and what should be included in future park play areas.
Park area improvements are contingent on the availability of funding from many sources: City capital construction funds 43%, State and King County park grants 47% and a community campaign led by the Des Moines Legacy Foundation that seeks to raise $205,000 for the project. For more information about the project contact the Des Moines Parks, Recreation and Senior Services Department at 206-870-6527.
