Parking at Wellmark


Questions may be answered by the Wellmark Welcome Center staff at 515-282-9622.

Ending January 31, 2020: The Wellmark YMCA will "validate" tickets for Members who park in the 5th & Keo Garage at the rate of $1 for up to the first 2 hours. Beyond the 2 hours, members pay at the regular garage rate of $1/hr. Currently, the garage does not charge on Sundays.

Y members must bring their 5th & Keo parking garage ticket and cash to front desk for "validation". If you are here for a swim meet which runs after the Y is closed, you will need to "validate" your parking garage ticket before the Y closes. (i.e. Fridays before 8:45pm, Saturdays before 4:45pm and Sundays before 5:45pm.) Please note, we cannot validate if your membership is not active. Payments made at the Wellmark Y for parking are cash and coins only.

The street meters on our block are monitored during the hours of 9am-9pm Monday-Saturday.
