Des Moines City Center

January 15, 2017

Blog ImageA long standing center of the Des Moines metro is Cowles Commons.  Several years ago this space was updated (then Nollen Plaza) to include a brick walking space, artwork, kid-friendly fountains and lights while keeping its trademark piece, the Crusoe Umbrella.  Flanked by the Civic Center and Capitol Square, this space is used for a variety of events such as the German Holiday Market in December to summer concerts. A gorgeous area to enjoy just being in the heart of the city!
