With its opening in 1915 Riverview Park was a source of great memories for the people of Des Moines. In 2021, after many years of little use, the Parks Area Foundation has led the charge to re-dedicate the park as a cultural destination for Des Moines, and the midwest.
The renovated park is now home to the a playground for children of all abilities, provided for by Variety - the Children's Charity and the magnificent Prairie Meadows Riviera Amphitheater which can hold crowds of 10,000 or more.
Through a partnership with the City of Des Moines, the Parks Area Foundation operates the stage, and invests revenue into the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhoods.
