Directions
South on SR 99 from Seattle, pass the airport and follow the signs to Des Moines You'll start on Des Moines Memorial Dr.. Follow this until you get to a real busy intersection and hang a left. Just after you get through the intersection ( approx. 2 blocks) Make a left on 11th. Then go up a hill about 4 blocks and you'll see it on your right hand side at the top of the street. Look for the water tower shown in the picture.

Des Moines is sort of a street park with little bits of tranny. The best thing it has going for it is one of the funbox. It's a standard eight sided bank design but with a little tranny at the base and at the lip making it extra fast and poppy. On one whole side of the park is a tight four foot wall that is pretty weird but fun when you figure some shit out. On the opposite side there is a three foot wedge in one corner and a right angle two foot trannyed platform which is smooth and kind of fun but whats up with the size. Also there is a marble edged platform and a small table top on the other two sides which are pretty fun too. Check it out if you can get there when there aren't too many kids on fruit boots it's definitely a good skate just for the funbox alone. Another strange skatepark design for Washington but if it wasn't sorta wack it just wouldn't be home now would it.

Des Moines can be good if you feel up to some challenging kinks and some tight transition.

It was good at one time, but now it is severely out dated.
