This July, Tour DM Parks is back again as a celebration of National Parks and Recreation Month. Just like previous years, we have designated 31 locations throughout the park system. Participants who visit all 31 spots and share a photo with the hashtag #tourdmparks on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram can compete to win the grand prize of $1,000 CASH courtesy of the Friends of Des Moines Parks.

Tour Location Photo Challenge
One photo submitted from each of the 31 sites will be selected as the winner and awarded a special Tour DM Parks commemorative coin!

  • First 500 entrants to visit 10 of the 31 locations and submit a photo receive an Iowa Cubs T-shirt.
  • First 500 participants to visit 20 locations and submit a photo receive a $20 “Parks Bucks” certificate, valid to use until June 30, 2019.
