Greater Des Moines Sports Facilities

As the famous Iowa movie quote goes, “If you build it, they will come.” So, we did.  

A 17,000 seat arena. The country's largest skatepark. The Drake Blue Oval. A one-of-a-kind RecPlex equipped for almost a dozen sports. A baseball park nestled along the riverfront. And coming soon, a 50-acre outdoor complex in Grimes and a professional soccer stadium downtown.  

We’ve built a community full of first-class venues capable of hosting events ranging from the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and AAU Junior Olympics to the Dew Tour and National Junior High Finals Rodeo. No matter your sport or size of event, our city says, “Bring it!”
