For emergency vehicle safety reasons, the City of Des Moines Fire Marshall and Police Departments are asking for visitors to no longer park on EAST Side of West River Drive (the side closest to the water).
We understand that parking is limited and we will be addressing parking expansion in the near future. We know this isn’t ideal, but hope everyone understands that access for emergency vehicles is extremely important. The Des Moines Police Department will issue parking citations.
Parking can be found around city parking ramps and other site locations for when we are hosting special events.
