Gray's Lake is a park just outside of downtown and on the way to the airport. Today's lake is actually an oxbow left behind as the course of the Raccoon River changed over time. Over time, this area was also a quarry (founded by Gaylord Gray) and then a commercial area that at one point had a Holiday Inn. The big flood of 1993 destroyed that establishment and through the generosity of many local citizens, the land was reborn as a beautiful park and Des Moines' "Place to Meet". Most recently the Meredith trail was completed that connects Gray's Lake Park directly to the Downtown area.

A nice 2 mile walk around the lake is a great way to spend some time, especially if the weather is nice. It's a pretty, well appointed park, and with lots of trees and places to relax. People watching was interesting too as a wide variety folks were fit and clearly enjoying themselves. And Gray's Lake Park is definitely popular! Both parking lots were almost full when I arrived. My parents will also make a special trip to come down here. They also took an early morning walk around the lake after they dropped Gayle, my son, and I off at the airport a few days ago.

I also liked the long Pedestrian bridge, which features individual brushed aluminum plaque donations. My parents' names are there somewhere and after walking the bridge twice, I couldn't find it among the hundreds of memorials, tributes, and at least 1 wedding proposal. The bridge itself is beautifully lit at night.

The lake also features paddle boat, hydrobike, and canoe rentals and a very nice beach for laying out and swimming.
