- Watch the City of Des Moines parking signage, located at most main arterial streets into downtown, with up to the minute information on which parking garages have spaces available.
Parking is available in the Wells Fargo Arena parking lot, City of Des Moines parking garages, and metered parking on downtown streets. Please pay attention to posted limits on parking meters, where typically they do not allow parking during the week between 7-9am or 4-6pm due to heavy commuter traffic.
