Friday Finds – Ewing Park Lilac Arboretum

Posted at 12:02 pm on May 11, 2018

Spring is an amazing time of year.  Everything is waking up after a long and cold winter slumber. Trees are turning green, flowers are blooming and people are enjoying the outdoors.  And nothing says spring more than the smell of lilac trees.  It is, hands down, one of the most wonderful fragrances!  Even if you don’t have any lilacs in your own yard, one special Des Moines park has got you covered.  
 
This week’s Friday Find is the Ewing Park Lilac Arboretum. And just this week, with City of Des Moines announced the lilacs are blooming!  With hundreds of lilac trees all blooming at once, the smells and views are sure to be stunning!  But you have to hurry, lilacs only bloom for about two weeks.  Perhaps the perfect Mother’s Day outing.  
 
Ewing Park Lilac Arboretum is located at 5300 Indianola Avenue. Visit the City of Des Moines website to learn more about the arboretum. 
 
 Just a reminder, Friday Finds is a way to show people the best local places to visit. If you have one you love and want the world to know about, please let me know so I can include it!
