2. Pappajohn Sculpture Park

Downtown Des Moines is where you will find John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park. This 4.4-acre park hosts a privately owned collection of 28 sculptures by well-known artists. Take a gentle stroll and see the giant ‘Spider,’ ‘Thinker on a Rock,’ the ‘White Ghost,’ and the huge ‘Pumpkin.’ If you need a break, why not take a seat at the ‘Seating for Eight and Café Table.’
