Greenwood/Ashworth Park, Pond, and Splashground – Des Moines, Iowa

Greenwood Ashworth Park, Pond, and Splashground

Greenwood/Ashworth Park and Splashground is a little confusing, but has a lot to offer! When you first pull down the street, you’ll see an outdoor theater followed by a pond with an outdoor classroom and paved trail. If you turn left and go up the hill, there is a new sprayground and the playground with the tennis courts. If you instead continue going straight, there are dirt trails past the pool. Greenwood Park is used by the neighboring Bergman Academy for recess, so be prepared for busy afternoons during the week day.
