Just in the past 10 or 15 years Des Moines has gone all in on public art. We're still kind of amazed! And it's right by Black Cat Ice Cream.
PAPPAJOHN SCULPTURE PARK. Nice place to have a walk and enjoy art works. This area is known hosting Des Moines Art Festival (June 26-28), Music Festival 80/35 (Jule 10-11)
Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2019, the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park features artwork by 24 of the world’s most celebrated artists. 4.4 acres, right at the entryway to downtown Des Moines.
Photo ops galore in this artsy park. Have a picnic, take a nap or a leisurely stroll and enjoy the unique sculptures created by both local and international artists.
This Sculpture Park is a lovely (free) walk around a nice area in downtown.

“Way hip side of down town! Check out Olympic Flame they have the best Gyros in town. Unless you're more into sushi, then stop by Miyabi 9. Its my favorite sushi joint in Des Moines and 100% hands down the best around here. If your looking for a bar with a underground type of vibe make sure you stop by Black Sheep.”

“The Cheese Shop is you place to visit for any cheese/charcuterie needs! They also recently opened a larger restaurant called the Cheese Bar which serves a full menu. I highly recommend both places!”
