Des Moines Water Works has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines Leadership Circle. The grant will help fund a master plan to renovate the park, said Randy Beavers, CEO and general manager of the water utility.
Des Moines Water Works, in collaboration with Iowa State University's department of landscape architecture, hosted an international design competition in 2011 to reinvent the park. Sasaki Associates Inc., RDG Planning & Design and Applied Ecological Services Inc. won the competition and are expected to begin developing a master plan this fall.
