According to a news release, park ambassadors are Bettendorf Parks and Recreation volunteers who patrol the city's parks and offer assistance to park patrons. They help keep the parks clean and act as the eyes and ears of the police within the parks.
Ambassadors serve from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Anyone interested in joining their ranks can contact Bettendorf Parks and Recreation at 563-344-7170.
