Crossroads Park is one of the City of West Des Moines' most visible parks. Located along the east side of Interstate 35, just south of the I-235/I-80 interchange, the 17.17 acre park is clearly visible to passing motorists. Crossroads is also one of two parks that directly border a West Des Moines school that shares the same name as the park. Due to Crossroads Park's proximity to a school, alcohol of any kind is not permitted in the park.

Facilities include:

  • A rentable picnic shelter with grill
  • Restrooms (open April 15 - October 15, weather permiting)
  • Play equipment
  • Six tennis courts
  • Large open playfield (Beginning in 2016, rental of the picnic shelter includes reservation of the playfield)
  • Softball field with skinned infield
  • Biking/walking trail
  • Skate park
  • Parking lot
