Gray’s Lake Park [MAP/SAT] is the “Place to Meet” in the Des Moines Metro area. The centerpiece of the park’s renewal plan is the two-mile trail encircling the lake. This trail is lit and equipped with emergency phones, providing a beautiful, clean, and safe outdoor experience.Connecting the trail on the south edge of the lake is a 1/4 mile pedestrian bridge, the only one of its kind in the Midwest. The bridge is lit and visible from Fleur Drive…a powerful message that Des Moines is an attractive and welcoming place to live and do business. is an Amazon Associate website, which means that a small percentage of your purchases gets paid to at no extra cost to you.
