Voted Business week's "Best Affordable Suburb" in Iowa in 2010 and is considered to be one of the preeminent communities in the Des Moines Metro.

Norwalk started out as a log cabin built by Samuel Snyder in 1852. When it was incorporated in 1900, the town was exactly one square mile in size. Today the city has grown so that she shares borders with her neighboring cities of Cumming, Des Moines and West Des Moines and at the 2010 census reported a population of 8,945.

Moving To Norwalk

"Grow your business in Norwalk" is the city in a nutshell. This is a fast-growing suburb that is community-minded and takes pride that you can start and grow a business here. The close proximity to the Des Moines International airport and the major cities within close commute makes this an ideal place for anyone wanting to grow and prosper.

When to Look

The summer months of June to September are quite hot and humid but are also the best time to relocate. You can take advantage of the wonderful lakes and golfing while you're toting around between apartment viewings!

Neighborhoods in Norwalk

There are two main neighborhoods in Norwalk. Here's a little more info about each of them.

Lakewood: The livability score for this area is 81/100, meaning that people love to live here and it's super easy to get around. You'll also find great restaurants here, like Maid-Rite and Villagio. Lakewood was developed around the man-made Lake Colchester. The south shore has been hugely developed with housing, businesses and schools. The City of Norwalk did their bit in protecting the local residents by relocating Iowa 5, Iowa 28 and Runways 5-23 of the Des Moines International airport.

Echo Valley Estates: This area is pretty rural, but the Echo Valley Country Club is located here, which many people like to live by. There aren't many restaurants besides Subway and McDonald's! Echo Valley was started in the 1970's and has also seen housing developments with the surrounding areas ear-marked for commercial use

Apartment Communities

High Pointe Apartments: This apartment complex welcomes pets and short-term rentals! They have 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments that are fully equipped kitchen, air cons, fans and fireplaces. Community amenities on the property.

Cedarbrooke Place Apartments: 1, 2 and three bedrooms in a wonderful blend of country comfort and modern design in landscaped surroundings with community amenities. Fully equipped kitchens, laundry and numerous other fittings and styles to suit every lifestyle. Ask for rent specials. Disabled-friendly.

Living in Norwalk

A new 18-hole PGA golf course has been presented to the people by the Colonial Meadows Development. The leisure facilities are numerous and within in minutes drive or a few minutes' walk, you will find the The Legacy Golf Course, Willow Creek Golf Course, Great Western Bike Trail, Southridge Mall and the Countryside Golf Course.

There are two Amtrak train stations within the city centre but most people who commute tend to form car clubs, however, as 45% of the people living in Norwalk actually work from home, transport isn't a problem.

On your days off you will have a choice of a public swimming pool, 4 public tennis courts, a public library and a 175 acre Private lake. People here are great golf players and being out-of-doors in the beautiful weather is a great way to meet neighbors and socialize. Have pool parties - you can rent the public pool for private functions. There are at least 20 restaurants along the main drag of Sunset Drive with enough different tastes to suit all palates.

Living in Norwalk is a peaceful experience. Expect to get to know your neighbors well as it is an extremely social community. The small city life allows for you to walk around the neighborhood, and do your errands without having to drive a lot. Many of the residents report that their commute times are low, meaning that if you don't like stop and go traffic on your way to work you'll absolutely love living in Norwalk. The education level is higher than the average education level in the United States. If you get along well with educated people you'll feel just at home in your time at Norwalk. Most things in Norwalk are spread by word of mouth so if you really want a good opinion on a house or neighborhood just ask; everyone will be delighted to help you.
