Des Moines Botanical Gardens’ Hillside Garden houses Delta Fountains’ newest waterfall feature. The hillside waterfall overlooks the Koehn Garden, also known as Celebration Lawn and Garden. Water cascades down the stair-step pathway and over the weir edge from a single source near the top of the hill. Visitors at the bottom of the waterfall can relax on a hidden bench under the weir edge. From beneath the fall, the water provides a unique look onto the lawn.
