Des Moines has a new public park. Sound View Park, at 402 S. 222nd St., is located on a 0.76-acre lot that was formerly the site of the historic Van Gasken home, built in 1889. That home was torn down in 2020 following the city of Des Moines' acquisition of the land. According to public records, the city acquired the property and its surrounding land to “ensure that the site was not redeveloped in a manner that would further limit public access and views of Puget Sound.”
