In just a few months the state of Iowa will be home to possibly the biggest skate park in the country. This project has been in the works for some time now. Lauridsen Skatepark in Des Moines will open to the public on May 22, 2021. Located right next to the Des Moines River at the end of the Principal Riverwalk, this skate park might just be the largest in the nation. Not only will this be a skater's dream spot, but Lauridsen Skatepark will include the following: flow bowl, amoeba pool, snake run, and a promenade.
