    Parks & Recreation is looking for additional volunteers to become ambassadors for the Ankeny Dog Park.

    Ambassador responsibilities include facilitating a fun and enjoyable environment for park users and their pets, ensuring all patrons have their permit visible while using the facility, and informing users of the park’s rules and requirements. For volunteering two hours per week, ambassadors will receive a free Dog Park Pass the next calendar year.

    No previous dog obedience training is needed. New ambassadors must attend a mandatory orientation seminar that covers topics such as; body language, park regulations and owner-to-owner etiquette.

    Interested in becoming an ambassador? Please email Recreation Coordinator Whitney Garcia at or call 515-963-3573 to sign up.
