Walk through Palm Springs Downtown Park, a 2-acre public open space that is the heart of the city’s ambitious redevelopment and revitalization of Downtown Palm Springs. The Park offers visitors a shady oasis near the Palm Springs Art Museum and the vibrant retail hub along Palm Canyon Drive. Sited on the grounds of the historic Desert Inn, the first sanatorium resort in Palm Springs, the design draws on Palm Springs’ legacy as a destination for health, nature, and pleasure seekers.
Explore the natural oasis within the park, which features an extensive, dense palm grove with ample shaded areas and seating, two picnicking eco-lawns and amphitheater seating for community events, shade structures inspired by palm fronds, and a grotto-like interactive water feature for play and cooling ambient temperatures. Stroll through and discover the local natural features of the park like the endemic Washingtonia filifera sanctuary in Palm Canyon and waterfalls and the striated canyon walls in nearby Tahquitz Canyon.
