Inclusive Grays Lake park amenities

Accessible Parks for All

More and more amenities are being added to the park system to serve people with disabilities.  They include:

  • Ashley Okland Star Playground in Ewing Park This entirely inclusive playground was donated by Variety – The Children’s Charity
  • Gray’s Lake Accessible Boat Launch Donated by the Friends of Des Moines Parks and committed citizens, this boat launch allows people in wheelchairs to safely transition from their wheelchair to a canoe or kayak and safely launches users into Gray’s Lake.

Memorial Contribution

A memorial contribution to the Friends has provided free outdoor exercise equipment for wheelchair bound and senior citizens at Evergreen Park and Franklin Field. This total boating, bicycling, and exercise package makes Des Moines a destination for disabled persons.
