    The one near 3rd and Court charges $5 to get into the ramp on the weekends.

    Re: Des Moines parking garages

    I thought about google, but decided I would get just as quick of an answer here vs. having to look at 20 links that may or may not be what I wanted to know.

    No problem.
    I rarely carry cash so that ramp near 3rd and Court always burns me! They always have a guy standing there by the guard rails collecting the money.

    Is it a real worker, or a guy that has figured out an easier way to panhandle?

    Re: Des Moines parking garages

    parking is free if the money taker person isn't there. i don't know what time he quits though. 10pm?


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    The city lots are free, some of them arent city lots so they are not free...

    Also you dont have to pay the parking meters downtown on the weekends either.... not sure about July 4th...

    This. If there is an Wells Fargo event, alot of them will be charging.

    If you are going to 80/35 park in the Nationwide ramp, It's free.

    Haha. Im what you call a frequent guest of the downtown establishments. That guy is there every single time, collecting everyone's $5 that enters the ramp. And he hands you a ticket. So he is either the best con man this world has ever known, or he works for the city.

    The ramp over on 5th is free. But if you want to park on 3rd near Court ave, its $5. I dont know if the guy leaves at a certain time, but if he does its late.

    I think that is only when there is an event at Wells Fargo or something. It's been free lots of other times unless this is new development.

    I cant say for certain that you are mistaken because it could be an amazing coincidence. But every time ive parked there (which is fairly often) its $5.
    Now, that's after 7pm(ish). Toward "bar hours". So maybe they wont charge at around 5pm or something. But im pretty sure its $5 any weekend night around "bar time".

    Generally the ramps are free on weekends unless there is a big event. Meters are always free after 6pm weekdays and on weekends.
