Des Moines' busy parks drive new projects
Park usage spiked during the pandemic, which set the stage for multiple new records at Des Moines parks last year, according to a city report published last week.
- Adult volleyball as well as youth flag football and basketball recorded their highest annual participation levels in 2021.
- A sand volleyball league will launch later this year.
Of note: While not all records, high usage was seen across other park programs.
- Golf: Nearly 110,000 rounds played.
- Dog parks: About 1,950 permits sold.
