West Des Moines Boathouse
Work has begun on the Raccoon River Park Boathouse. This state-of-the-art boathouse on Blue Heron Lake in West Des Moines will offer restrooms plus bicycle and boat rentals including canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, stand-up paddle boards and more. The boathouse will also serve as a river trail and land trail hub and offer additional parking for easy access to the water.
The Boathouse is part of West Des Moines’ Five Waters Project. The plan includes five signature projects that will transform the way we interact with our waterways.
