Ashby Park : A Summer Tradition


Ashby Park is one of my kiddos favorite places to play during the summer.  In fact, it was listed as #26 on my Summer Bucket List.  The reason why?  Ashby Park offers a chance to play in both water and on playground equipment.  On top of this, it offers lots of trees for shade, which gives you a chance to cool off and have a picnic lunch in the hot Iowa Summer.  Ashby Park is located at 3200 38th St in Des Moines.  The next time you are looking for something fun and free to do with the kiddos, definitely check this place out.

Hours are Monday – Friday, 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.Saturday, Sunday and Holidays, Noon – 6:00 p.m.
