The Gray’s Station wetland basin and trail system has officially opened to the public, connecting Gray’s Station to Gray’s Lake Park, Water Works Park and the many miles of trail systems. Along the trail, you’ll notice signs that describe exactly what the large wetland basin system can do for the downtown storm water management system as well as what types of native plant species are expected to emerge in the next six months to one year.
Take a quick fly-over of the entire trail as it spans from SW 11th Street in downtown Des Moines to the Chris & Marcie Coleman Bridge over the Raccoon River.
Stay in the loop at Gray’s Station on Facebook as we get ready to reveal the next surprise (or surprises) that will be found along the trail later this spring. We are excited to see the trail begin to turn green with warmer spring air and plant species sprouting!
