    Gray's Lake Park

    Anybody ever been down to Gray's Lake in Des Moines? I think its such an awesome place to go on a nice day. At night the bridge that you walk over the lake with lights up in these sweet colors

    Take a look:

    Its approx. 2 mile run/walk around the lake. I very much recommend it. Its an awesome time.

    It's a blast roller blading there, that's for sure.

    Re: Gray's Lake Park

    Cool picture. Kind of reminds me of the bridge in Greenville, SC. Except that curves out high over a river and waterfall, and the bridge doesn't look like it's safe because of the weird construction.

    Re: Gray's Lake Park

    Grays Lake is a crown jewel in the city of Des Moines. Business people that fly into DM and taxi downtown ride right by the lake and get a favorable 1st impression. Thank goodness for the vision of former Register publisher David Kruidenier. He lead with generosity to knock down the flooded out Holiday Inn and build a walking trail around the lake. The park is crazy popular and will see countless health enthusiasts every day of the year.

    Re: Gray's Lake Park

    The little boats you can take out on the lake are always pretty cool too.
