A unique destination park and engaging play space, spurred by the Des Moines area's many Rotary Clubs.
RDG facilitated a participatory process engaging multiple Rotary Clubs, civic organizations, public agencies and city departments to create this distinctive, appealing park for children, families and visitors to experience along the west bank of the Des Moines River at the northern terminus of The Principal Riverwalk. The Rotarian Four-Way Test informs the intent and design for the park: 1. Is it the TRUTH? 2. Is it FAIR to all concerned? 3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
