FORE! Our Parks Golf Outing and Bike Ride, hosted by the Friends of Des Moines Parks, is our organization’s largest fundraising event annually. Golfers participate in an 18-hole shotgun round at Waveland Golf Course, with fun games and stops along the way. Bikers pedal 18 miles on city trails, with trivia and refreshment stops before returning to Waveland for pizza and prizes with the golfers. Each year we designate a special project or projects to which all proceeds are allocated. This year all proceeds benefit 3 Des Moines park and trail projects: renovations to the beloved Rocket Slide at Union Park, a basketball court resurfacing project at Evelyn K Davis Park and E-911 trail markers impacting safety for all trail users.
