The Nation’s Largest Skatepark Is Right Here In Iowa On The Des Moines River

Eighty-eight thousand. That’s a massive number. Especially when it’s a number of square feet. Even more impressive if it’s the number of square feet of the brand new skate park that opened recently in downtown Des Moines. And that’s exactly what it is. Believe it or not, there’s now an 88,000-square-foot skatepark on the banks of the Des Moines River in Iowa. And not only is it the largest skatepark in the Hawkeye State, but it’s actually the largest skatepark in America!

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
