I saw a sign for Little Bridge Park in De Soto, Iowa on our way down to Winterset and thought we’d stop by and take a peek! I just snapped some pictures from my car – this park would be a fun stopping point to catch some fresh and we’ll stop by to explore more sometime soon. It had a lot of open space and a cute little bridge, a nice playground, and covered shelter for a picnic.
Name: Little Bridge Park
Address: Adair St & Elm St, De Soto, IA 50069
Type: Places to play
Shade: Yes, shaded shelter
Water: Yes, creek
Other notes: Small bridge, basketball court in the parking lot. Funky squirrel sculpture. I couldn’t find an official address anywhere, but included the closest intersection, which will lead you right there, in addition to the signage. Sand pit with sand diggers.
Carol said in the comments that a train track runs nearby, and if you’re lucky you can see the train running while at the park!
