Urbandale Parks Challenge: Charles Gabus Memorial Tree Park and Gardens
This park is located right next to the Urbandale Library on 86th Street. Just a heads up, it doesn't have a playground. Instead, I'd describe it as a place to reflect. There are plenty of benches, fountains, and sculptures. A trail runs through, so there are also people on bikes passing by. It's very peaceful!
Jo enjoyed being able to explore a bit.
She was interested and a little uncertain of the statues. I thought it was cute when she tried to hold the girl's hand.
Because of the flags and memorials, I think this would be a good park to visit on Memorial Day. There's a shelter that looks good for picnics!
