Working with Courtney and William was outstanding. They covered everything. The venue was perfect for our [family reunion].

I used the Beach Park Picnic Shelter on September 11, 2021. It was exactly what we needed for my wife’s Celebration of Life picnic. It’s a beautiful facility. Ashley and Cortney did a great job of walking me through the process and making sure I had everything I needed. Thank you so much for reducing my stress level so that I could focus on the picnic prep.

It was wonderful to use the Des Moines event center facility. The space was very appropriate to our needs. We didn’t use the last day due to the extreme heat experienced that week, but we will go back in a heartbeat if we need a similar facility again.

Beautiful facility on the historic registry.  Recently restored to its 1930’s splendor.

We went to a concert here today. I had no idea this place was here! And my friend Randy Hansen played there! Awesome show and a cool place!

Beautiful location for an event.  Staff was very helpful and easy to work with.  We were very happy with the Founders lodge.

This place is in a great location – right next to the Des Moines Marina and the beach, can’t beat it. The event center and other spaces are truly unique not to mention historical. I’ve been to a number of local Chamber events and a Holiday part here and they are always top notch. The newly renovated spaces here lend themselves to almost any type of event. The large outdoor spaces all come with great views of the water and did I mention the beach area?

We had our wedding reception here and it was very nice. The city workers who organized the event were easy to work with and helped with all permit questions and scheduling. Highly recommended.

Awesome place where I had my wedding! The weather was great and view of my wedding pictures with the water front in the background was breath taking.

Great view, beach access, “free” weekly concerts (with donation) every Wednesday night in the summertime. Only pay 1 dollar an hour for parking up to 4 hours, OR pay 5 dollars for all day parking.

Great for Birthday party gatherings. Or, whatever you deemed legit for a party. Lots of room. Lots of parking. Perfect in the summer.
