Des Moines is recruiting dog park ambassadors to help keep the shared spaces clean and to make sure visitors follow the rules.

State of play: The gig is unpaid, but those who donate at least 40 hours a year earn a free dog park permit, a $20 value.

  • The program has, in recent years, helped provide oversight and guidance at DSM's three municipal dog parks, open daily from 6am-10pm.

Visit the dog parks: Ewing, 4660 Indianola Ave. (Includes a fenced area for dogs 20 pounds or less)

  • Reno Memorial, 3325 Hubbell Ave.
  • Riverwalk, 1111 Illinois St.
