You can plan your next event at one of the 75 beautiful parks in the Des Moines park system.  A city park is a great location for family reunions, birthday parties, baby showers and school outings.  We have 9 enclosed and 38 open-air shelters, most of which can be reserved for your private event.  Seating capacity varies from 12 to 125, depending on the shelter.
