Part of this meeting will include an update on the Witmer Park Project, the second Phase of a two-year improvement plan for Witmer Park. The Witmer Park Project is a collaboration between members of the BNA, Drake Neighborhood Association, park neighbors, and the City of Des Moines. Its goal is to develop a restroom facility and new playground for the park. At this meeting, staff from the City's Parks & Recreation department will present the final playground design concept in a few different color scheme options.
