Disco Fever Rocked Des Moines!
The Des Moines Legacy Foundation's 18th annual Bayside Brunch was a rockin' good time on Sunday, November 5th at Anthony's Homeport in Des Moines.
Revenue from tickets, raffles, auctions and buttons raised $1,000's for Des Moines and Normandy Park senior programs and services and for
recreation scholarships for low income youth. We could not be "Stayin' Alive" without our generous sponsors!

Des Moines Legacy Foundation Launches a Citywide Playground Project Community Campaign
The Des Moines Citywide Playground Project approved by City Council in March of this year will provide the designs to repair and replace play structures at seven of Des Moines Parks and to create a new play area at Steven J. Underwood Memorial Park. This action is the first of many steps that will be taken within the next three years to restore City's aging park play areas.
The play equipment located at Cecil Powell Neighborhood Park was removed due to safety concerns in 2013 and the neighborhood has asked for the equipment to be replaced. The removal of play equipment at Kiddie Park, Westwood Park and Wooton Park is also eminent, likely within the next year or two. And, there is strong community support for play areas to be installed at Des Moines Beach Park where the play area was removed over a decade ago due to flooding and infrastructure repairs and at Steven J. Underwood Memorial Park where a play area has not been installed due to lack of funding. The City's challenge is the lack of funding resources to make the necessary improvements.
