Friday Finds episode 3, Macrae Park Look Out

Posted at 1:42 pm on December 6, 2019

This week’s Friday Find has me at MacRae Park, hovering 40 ft above a hillside for the most breathtaking views of our downtown skyline…maybe a little unnerving for those afraid of heights but definitely worth it! If you love our city as much as me, you will appreciate this view of downtown Des Moines that can be seen from the new EMC Overlook. The steel overlook deck is 96 feet long and hovers about 40 feet off the ground, creating a unique feature in this park that both locals and visitors will love. At MacRae park, you’ll also find an ice skating lagoon and a shelter where you can host gatherings with friends and family!
