You’ve got to check out Des Moines’ newest park, featured in today’s Friday Find video. The Riverview Park and Amphitheater is at 710 Corning Ave on Des Moines’ north side, and is the newest – and coolest – park in town! If you’ve got kids, you’ll definitely want to check out the Starr Playground, which is not only accessible for kids of all abilities, but it’s got the most unique equipment – all custom designed to pay homage to the original Riverview Amusement Park located there in the 1970’s. You can also find live music at the Riverview Amphitheater (which has capacity for a crowd of nearly 9,000!) throughout the spring and summer months, and the park is connected to area trails and the river accessible from the Birdland Marina.
