John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park

While in Des Moines recently, I visited the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park. This was a nice little park located not to far from the State Capital.  Basically it was a bunch of different sculptures located in a city block.  It was nice to walk around the block and look at the different sculptures.  There were several people walking around and a couple of families with kids.

Overall, while I enjoyed my visit to this park and the pleasant walk looking at the different sculptures, I am not sure that it is an area that I would visit often.  I really wish that there would have been some information about each of the different sculptures, the artist, the inspiration behind the art piece, etc.
