Friday Find with Sara Hopkins Realtor | Episode 22 – Union Park

Posted at 2:52 pm on August 28, 2020

The Union Park neighborhood holds a special place in my heart. My Grandma lived in the neighborhood and I spent my childhood at Union Park, otherwise known as “the rocket slide park.” You definitely lived a deprived childhood if you didn’t get to experience 3rd degree burns from that slide! 😉 Fortunately it’s been redone in recent years and is much safer now (although still just as steep!) Fun fact, my dad proposed to my mom at Union Park in 1971! So seeing this park revitalized with a splash pad &
Heritage Carousel has been fun to watch. The entire Union Park Neighborhood Association Des Moines is being revitalized and it  makes my heart so happy. I also can’t wait to see more happening along our river. With all the efforts of the non-profit organization, Central Iowa Water Trails, I know our city is headed in the right direction and we will continue to see the areas along our river flourish.
